In the development of earlier initiated studies on the synthesis of natural and synthetic neuritogenic alkynols, lembehynes A-C, which, simultaneously, exhibit high antitumor activity, we have developed a method for the synthesis of an analogue of natural lembehyne B containing a phenyl radical in its structure. It has been shown that the synthesized aromatic analogue of lembehyne B exhibits higher antitumor activity in vitro to a number of tumor cell lines (Jurkat, K562 and U937).

Keywords: Antitumor activity, aromatic analogue of lembehyne B.
