The synthesis of 1,7-dideaza-2’-deoxyadenosine (1) and related pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine 2’-deoxy-β-D-ribofuranosides is described. Glycosylation of the anions of the pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridines 5a or 5b with 2-deoxy-3,5-di-O-(p-toluoyl)-α-D-erythro-pentofuranosyl chloride (6) has been carried out under phase-transfer conditions (MeCN, solid KOH, TDA-1, 25°C) and was complete within less than 15 min. The reaction was stereoselective and β-nucleosides were formed exclusively. The position of glycosylation as well as the anomeric configuration were assigned by NOE difference spectroscopy. Compound 1 was extremely stable against acid or base and was not deaminated by adenosine deaminase.
