Abstract: In search of strongly fluorescent tricyclic analogues of acyclovir (ACV, 1) and ganciclovir (GCV, 2), derivatives of the 3,9-dihydro-9-oxo-5H-imidazo[1,2-a]purine system, several 6-[4-(acyloxy)phenyl], 6-[4-(acylamino)phenyl], and 6-[4-(phenoxycarbonyloxy)phenyl]-substituted TACV and TGCV analogues were synthesized and evaluated for their activity against herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 in cell culture. All TACV and TGCV analogues showed strong fluorescence (quantum yield of 30-65% vs 2-aminopurine 100%). The 6-[4-(phenoxycarbonyloxy)phenyl]-substituted compounds 11 and 19 displayed the best combination of the fluorescence and antiviral potency.
