Synthesis and biological evaluation of novel homochiral carbocyclic nucleosides from 1-amino-2-indanols.

New chiral purinyl and 8-azapurinyl carbanucleoside derivatives based on indanol were synthesized from commercial available (1S,2S)-trans-1-amino-2-indanol and (1R,2R)-trans-1-amino-2-indanol using a linear methodology. The antiviral activity and cytotoxicity of these compounds were evaluated against herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) in Vero cells, bovine… (More)
