Crawford, Julia A., Fraser, William and Ramsden, Christopher A. (2009). Preparation of 9-substituted pyridine-stretched adenines and hypoxanthines. Synthesis, 2009 (8), pp. 1271-1278.


9-Methylsulfanyl pyridine-stretched adenine and hypoxanthine derivatives have been prepared via regioselective reaction of a 5-aminoimidazole with 2-(bis-methylsulfanylmethylene)malononitrile [(NC)C=C(SMe) ]. The 9-methylsulfanyl substituent can be replaced by sequential oxidation and substitution by nucleophiles including amines.
