A novel route is proposed for the synthesis of heterocyclic analogs of the naturally occurring combretastatin A-4 based on the reaction of α-acetylenic ketones with polyfunctional nucleophiles (hydroxylamine, hydrazine, guanidine). Previously unknown combretastatin A-4 analogs with azole and azine bridges were obtained.
