Acyclic Nucleoside Analogues: III. A Synthesis of New 2′,3′-Dideoxy-2′,3′-Didehydronucleoside Analogues


The coupling of 5-acetoxy-1,1-dimethoxypent-2-ene with cytosine and thymine trimethylsilyl derivatives, as well as the reaction of 5-acetoxy-1-bromopent-2-ene with adenine sodium salt, yielded acyclic analogues of the corresponding nucleosides containing 5′-acetoxy groups. They were deprotected with a saturated methanolic solution of ammonia to the target analogues of nucleosides, which were characterized with 1H NMR, IR, and UV spectra.
