Abstract

The preparation of two nucleoside analogues are reported. Both syntheses involve a key photochemical ring-expansion of cyclobutanones to an oxacarbene and its subsequent scavenging by 6-chloropurine. The synthesis of a bicyclic (locked) purine starts from a oxabicycloheptanone with a hydroxymethyl pendant. The preparation of an isonucleoside uses a cyclobutanone with an α-substituted 6-chloropurine. Irradiation of the latter produces an isonucleoside and acyclic nucleoside analogues.
Keywords: cyclobutanone; oxacarbene; bicyclic nucleosides; isonucleosides; acyclic nucleoside cyclobutanone; oxacarbene; bicyclic nucleosides; isonucleosides; acyclic nucleoside
