Abstract: 2'-Deoxyuridines with a five-membered heterocyclic substituent in the 5-position were synthesized by palladium-catalyzed coupling reactions of 5-iodo-2'-deoxyuridine with the activated heteroaromatics. Further modification of the compound with the 5-thien-2-yl substituent gave 5-(5-bromothien-2-yl)-2'-deoxyuridine and 5-(5-chlorothienyl-2-yl)-2'-deoxyuridine. Both compounds show potent and selective activity against herpes simplex virus type 1 and varicella-zoster virus.
