An approach to a carbocyclic analogue of cyclic adenosine 5'-diphosphate ribose. The synthesis and bisphosphorylation of N<sup>1</sup>-[(1S,3R)-3-(hydroxymethyl)cyclopent-1-yl]inosine
Fortt SM., Potter BVL.
The synthesis of N 1 -[(1S,3R)-3-(hydroxymethyl)cyclopent-1-yl]inosine (11) via a cyclocondensation route is reported. Regioselective bisphosphorylation of the primary 5'-hydroxyl groups leads to a carbocyclic, inosine analogue of seco adenosine 5'-diphosphate ribose(3).
