Abstract:Reaction of bis(2-chloroethyl) ether (II) with triethyl phosphite afforded diethyl 2-chloroethoxyethylphosphonate (III). This compound reacts with sodium salts of heterocyclic bases to give diethyl esters of N-(2-(2-phosphonylethoxy)ethyl) derivatives of purine and pyrimidine bases IV. Compounds IV on reaction with bromotrimethylsilane and subsequent hydrolysis were converted into N-(2-(phosphonylethoxy)ethyl) derivatives IV.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
