Abstract: A dioxane homo-sugar analog, (2S,5S)-and (2R,5S)-5-[(4S)-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-yl]-2-iodomethyl-1,4-dioxane was prepared from (2R,3R)-dimethyl tartrate, and further elaborated into the corresponding homo-N-nucleoside analogs by its reactions with uracil and adenine, respectively.
Keywords: Sugar analog; Nucleoside analogs; Homo-N-Nucleoside; 1; 4-Dioxane; Hetero-cycles
