The starting methyl 1-(2’-deoxy-β-d
) was prepared by deoxygenation of the corresponding riboside, employing the literature procedure [1
]. To a solution of 1
(150 mg, 0.5 mmol) and guanidine hydrochloride (240 mg, 2.5 mmol) in 30 mL of absolute methanol was added 1 mL of 25% (w/v) sodium methoxide solution in methanol. The reaction mixture was stirred for 24 h at room temperature, then 1 g of silica gel was added. The resulting mixture was evaporated to dryness and the product was isolated by silica gel flash chromatography. The column was successively eluted with chloroform/methanol (10:1) and methanol. The proper fraction was collected and evaporated to afford title product 2
as a colorless solid. Yield 110 mg (74.5%).
