Inosine was prepared (15% yield) by treatment of 5-amino-1-beta-D-ribofuranosyl-4-imidazolecarboxamide (AICA-riboside) with chloroform in the presence of sodium methoxide. This ring closure can be reasonably explained by assuming the formation of dichlorocarbene from chloroform and alkali. Carbon tetrachloride or hexachloroethane as a carbene source was(More)
4-Cyanamido-5-imidazolecarboxamide (IV) was prepared by brief treatment of 5-(S-methylisothiocarbamoyl) amino-4-imidazolecarboxamide (V) with alkali. Compound VI was converted in an alkaline solution to either guanine (VII) or isoguanine (VIII), depending on the concentration of alkali. This procedure was applied to the synthesis of(More)
A new cycloimidazole nucleoside, 5-(1 inch -benzamido-1 inch-hydroxymethylene) amino-2', 1 inch-anhydro-1-beta-D-ribofuranosyl-4-imidazolecarboxamide (III) was synthesized by reaction of 5-amino-1-beta-D-ribofuranosyl-4-imidazolecarboxamide (AICA-riboside) with benzoyl isothiocyanate followed by methylation with methyl iodide. The structure of III was(More)
