1-O-Acetyl-2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-4-thio-L-arabinofuranoside (6) was transformed in two steps into the 1-(4-thio-L-arabinofuranosyl)-5-halopyrimidine nucleosides 10, 11 and 12, obtained as anomeric mixtures which were separable in the case of 10 and 11. No in vitro antiviral activity against HIV-1 and HIV-2. TK+ and TK- VZV and CMV has been found for 10, 11 and(More)
New isonucleosides [methyl 5-(1-pyrimidinyl)furanosides] are prepared by nucleophilic opening of the oxetane ring of methyl 3,5-anhydro-2-O-(2-fluorobenzyl)-D-xylofuranoside with silylated pyrimidine bases in the presence of trimethylsilyl triflate. Structures, configurations and conformations were determined by NMR techniques and several X-ray diffraction(More)
1-O-Acetyl-2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-4-thio-L-arabinofuranose (10) was transformed into the corresponding cytidine derivative 9 and the adenosine derivative 12. Both nucleosides, as well as the previously reported uridine and thymidine analogues 2 and 3, were tested for their in vitro antiviral activity.
Reaction of 1-O-acetyl-2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-4-thio-L-lyxofuranose with silylated pyrimidine bases and subsequent deprotection with boron tribromide led to 4'-thio-L-lyxo pyrimidine nucleosides. The 5-bromo-6-methyl derivative was prepared from methyl 2,3,5-tri-O-acetyl-4-thio-L-lyxofuranoside. Deacetylation was performed with sodium methoxide. The anomers(More)
1-O-Acetyl-2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-4-thio-L-lyxofuranose 1 was transformed into O-benzyl- and O-acetyl-protected 1-(4-thio-L-lyxofuranosyl) nucleoside derivatives by use of the TMSOTf method. Debenzylation with boron tribromide or deacetylation with sodium methoxide yielded the corresponding pyrimidine (7-11, 17, 18, 26 and 27) and purine (29 and 34) nucleoside(More)
Methyl 2,3-anhydro-alpha-D-ribofuranoside (3a) was transformed into methyl 2-seleno-2,5-anhydro-alpha-D-arabinofuranoside (5a) and methyl 3-seleno-3,5-anhydro-alpha-D-xylofuranoside (6a) in two steps via the reaction of the C-5 mesylate of 3a, methyl 2,3-anhydro-5-O-mesyl-alpha-D-ribofuranoside (4a), with sodium hydrogen selenide. The corresponding beta(More)
Methyl 2,5-anhydro-3-O-(2-methoxyethyl)-2-thio-beta-D-arabinofuranoside and methyl 2,5-anhydro-3-O-(2-fluorobenzyl)-2-thio-alpha-D-lyxofuranoside were transformed into the corresponding uridine, thymidine, cytidine and adenosine analogues, which exclusively exhibited the alpha-configuration irrespective of the anomeric configuration of the donor.
