Abstract: Based on the previous observation that anhydrohexitol nucleosides may exert antiviral activity, we have synthesized a series of beta-D-threo-hex-3'-enopyranosyl nucleosides starting from 1,5-anhydro-4,6-O-benzylidene-2-O-p-toluoyl-D-glucitol. These nucleosides adopt a predominant H-0(1) conformation with a pseudo axially oriented base moiety. This conformational behaviour can be explained by favorable pi-sigma* interactions, a gauche effect and hydrogen bond interactions. The alternative H-1(0) conformation is disfavored due to pseudo-1,3-diaxial interactions. Copyright (C) 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd
