Title: Syntheses of 1-[(2-hydroxyethoxy)methyl]- and 1-[(1,3-dihydroxy-2-propoxy)methyl]- derivatives of 5-substituted-2,4-difluorobenzene: unnatural acyclo thymidine mimics for evaluation as anticancer and antiviral agents

Abstract: A group of 1-[(2-hydroxyethoxy)methyl]- (12) and 1-[(1,3-dihydroxy-2-propoxy)methyl]- (13) derivatives of 2,4-difluorobenzene possessing a variety of C-5 substituents (R = Me, H, I, NO2) were designed with the expectation that they may serve as acyclic 5-substituted-2'-deoxyuridine (thymidine) mimics. Compounds 12 and 13 (R = Me, H, I) were inactive as anticancer agents (CC50 = 10(-3) to 10(-4) M range), whereas the 5-nitro compounds (12d, 13d) exhibited weak-to-moderate cytotoxicity (CC50 = 10(-5) to 10(-6) M range) against a variety of cancer cell lines. All compounds prepared (12a-d, 13a-d) were inactive as antiviral agents in a broad-spectrum antiviral screen that also included the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1 and HIV-2) and herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2).
