Abstract

A concise route to combretastatin A-4, a potent inhibitor of tubulin polymerisation, using a Ramberg–Bäcklund reaction to form the key (Z)-stilbene unit has been developed; this Ramberg–Bäcklund approach has also been extended to prepare the (E)-stilbene DMU-212, which also possesses interesting growth inhibitory properties.
