Nine new 3′-N-phenylsulfonyl docetaxel analogs were synthesized in good yields from the key intermediate N-phenylsulfonyl oxazolidine via a six-step route. These analogs were tested for anti-hepatitis B virus (HBV) activity in vitro. Compounds 3e, 3g and 3j showed more potent inhibitory activity against HBeAg secretion than the positive control lamivudine. Further extensive SAR and mechanistic studies will be reported in due course.
