XVII International Round Table on Nucleosides, Nucleotides and Nucleic Acids location:Bern, Switzerland date:3-7 September 2006
Hitherto unknown 1,4-disubstituted-[1,2,3]-triazolo-4',4'-dihydroxymethyl-3'-deoxy carbanucleosides were synthesized based on a "click approach." Various alkynes were introduced on a key azido intermediate by the "click" 1,3-dipolar Huisgen cycloaddition. Their antiviral activities and cellular toxicities were evaluated on vaccinia virus. None of the synthesized compounds exhibited a significant antiviral activity.
