Plants, source of various bioactive compounds have played crucial role in development of several clinically useful anticancer agents’ viz., vincristin, vinblastin, camptothecin derivatives and taxol. Combretastatin, a potent anticancer molecule was first isolated from plant. In this continuation a series of combretastatin analogues has been synthesized on the basis of our butterfly model with two wings as aryl groups and connecting carbon chain as the body. In present study we have synthesized combretastatin analogues of different substitutions, showed potent anticancer activity against different cell lines in different fashion according to substitution. Compound 6 showed marked anticancer activity against colo-205 cell lines (colon cancer).
