Abstract

Adenosine analogs in which the sugar unit was replaced by a 1,4-dioxane sugar equivalent, were prepared by coupling the 1,4-dioxane sugar analog as its anomeric acetates, with N6-benzoyl protected adenine. The 1,4-dioxane system was obtained in an enantioselective synthesis from (R,R)-dimethyl tartrate. Using standard phosphorimidite methodology, the adenine analog was further reacted with a 1,4-dioxane uridine analog to give the corresponding, protected dinucleotide, set-up for further condensation into larger oligonucleotides.
