Abstract: Both enantiomers of the carbocyclic analogues of 5-iodo-2'-deoxyuridine (14 and ent-14) and of (E)-5-(2-bromo-vinyl)-2'-deoxyuridine (16 and ent-16) were synthesized by using (+)- or (-)-endo-norborn-5-en-2-yl acetate or butyrate, respectively, as starting materials. Against herpes simplex virus type 1 (+)-C-BVDU (16) was only slightly less active than BVDU itself, whereas (-)-C-BVDU (ent-16) proved to be 10-400-fold less effective, depending on the strain investigated. Against HSV-2 both (+)- and (-)-C-BVDU as well as (+)- and (-)-C-IDU showed minor activity. All carbocyclic analogues were inactive against TK-HSV-1 strains, pointing to the prerequisite of phosphorylation (activation) by the viral thymidine kinase (TK).
