Aza TSAO-T derivatives bearing a dihydroisothiazole dioxide ring instead of an oxathiole dioxide ring at the C-3' position on the sugar moiety were prepared. We have synthesized four families of compounds depending on substitution at both N-3 and N-2' '. Biological evaluation showed that these compounds are HIV-1(III(B))-specific and potent reverse(More)
Carbon-carbon cross-coupling reactions are among the most important processes in organic chemistry, and Suzuki-Miyaura reactions are among the most widely used protocols for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds. These reactions are generally catalyzed by soluble palladium complexes with various ligands. However, the use of toxic organic solvents remains a(More)
Novel carbamic esters possessing a carbohydrate moiety derived from glycerol or D-glucose with two N,N-diethyldithiocarbamoyl groups and a series of bisdithiocarbamic esters having a ketone or an alkyl ester have been synthesized. The in vitro activity of these new compounds was evaluated against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lini. Some of the compounds(More)
Three 5-modified 2'-deoxyuridine nucleosides were synthesized and incorporated into oligonucleotides and compared with the previously published 5-(1-phenyl-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)-2'-deoxyuridine monomer W. The introduction of an aminomethyl group on the phenyl group led to monomer X, which was found to thermally stabilize a 9-mer DNA:RNA duplex, presumably(More)
Fluorescein isothiocyanate is treated with 3-aminophenylboronic acid to provide a fluorescently tagged boronic acid derivative which is used to assess Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) quenching upon boronate ester formation with a series of bespoke diol appended quenchers. Fluorescence spectroscopy comparison of quenching efficiency between(More)

The detailed study of the 1,3-dihydrobenzo[c]furan derivative of thymine is reported. The lack of anti-HIV activity of this compound in cell culture experiments is shown to be related to the inability of the corresponding 5'-triphosphate derivative to interact efficiently with the reverse transcriptase.
This paper proposed a potential industrial accompaniment to reduce ionic liquid harmfulness by a novel combination of OECD Daphnia magna standardized test and fish immunomarkers. The combination of these two tests allowed multicriteria examination of ILs impacts in different organisms and trophic levels. The work provided new data for legislation and opened(More)
The anti-HIV activity and stability studies of 1,3-dihydrobenzo[c]furan analogue of d4T are reported. The corresponding mononucleoside phosphotriester derivative bearing a S-pivaloyl-2-thioethyl (tBuSATE) group, as biolabile phosphate protection, is also studied.
This paper describes the separation of the four sets of stereoisomers of nucleoside analogs, new potential antiviral agents by direct analytical HPLC methods using derivatized cellulose and amylose chiral stationary phases. The resolution was made using normal-phase methodology with a mobile phase consisting of n-hexane-alcohol (ethanol or 2-propanol) in(More)
