Synthesis and X-Ray Structure of New Anticancer Nucleosides Based on 1-((2-Hydroxyethoxy)methyl)-5-(phenylthio)-1H-1,2,4-triazole-3-carboxamide


A pair of new anticancer nucleosides based on 1,2,4-triazole nucleosides and 1-((2-hydroxyethoxy) methyl)-5-(phenylthio)-1H-1,2,4-triazole-3-carboxamide have been synthesized, and have given the corresponding products in excellent yields. Its structures and conformations were confirmed by single crystal X-ray diffraction.
