Synthesis of substituted 6-cyclopropylpurine bases and nucleosides by cross-coupling reactions or cyclopropanations

Abstract

Synthesis of novel purine bases and nucleosides bearing unsubstituted or substituted cyclopropyl rings in position 6 is reported. Unsubstituted 6-cyclopropylpurines were efficiently prepared by cross-coupling reactions of 6-chloropurines with cyclopropylzinc chloride. 6-Vinylpurines underwent Cu-mediated cyclopropanations with ethyl diazoacetate to give 6-[(ethoxycarbonyl)cyclopropyl]purines that were further transformed to carboxylic acids, amides and alcohols. 6-Cyclopropylpurine ribonucleoside exerted a significant cytostatic effect while all substituted derivatives were inactive.
