Abstract: A series of cis-locked stilbenic compounds related to combretastatin and combretastatin A4 has been designed and synthesized. The cytotoxic effects of these rigid analogues were evaluated as well as their abilities to inhibit tubulin polymerization.
Keywords: combretastatins, isoindolinones, oxygen heterocycle, oxidation, anticancer agents.
