    Three novel 4-deacetoxy-1,7-dideoxy azetidine paclitaxel analogues were synthesized through a convenient route that employed hydroboration-amination and intramolecular SN2-type substitution reaction from a natural taxoid taxinine. All analogues have been tested for cytotoxicity against three human tumor cell lines. None of them showed remarkable cytotoxicity compared to paclitaxel against tested tumor cell lines.
