Abstract: Synthesis of purines and purine mono-1-oxides from the respective 5-substituted 4-nitroimidazole derivatives is described. The commercially available 4-nitroimidazole, in a few simple steps (including Vicarious Nucleophilic Substitution of Hydrogen), was transformed into: 4-aminoimidazoyl-5-carboximes, N-[1-(4-amino-1H-imidazol-5-yl)methylidene]-N-(aryl)amine derivatives or into 4-amino-5-aminomethyl-imidazole. These intermediates were cyclized to the final products.
Keywords: purines; purine N-oxides; nitroimidazoles; oximes; Schiff bases; isocyanides; Vicarious Nucleophilic Substitution
