Coupling of 5-deoxy-2,3-O-isopropylidene-D-ribono-1,4-lactone (5) with 2-lithio-4-(4,5-dihydro-4,4-dimethyloxazol-2-yl)pyridine (6), subsequent mesylation, followed by reduction and ammonolysis resulted in the formation of 2-(5-deoxy-β-D-ribofuranosyl)pyridine-4-carboxamide (4). The anomeric configuration was established with 2D-NOESY-1H-nmr-spectroscopy. Conformational analysis was done with the aid of the high resolution 1H-nmr-spectroscopy data. Compound (4) possessed modest cytostatic activity against a number of tumor cell lines and was slightly inhibitory to vaccinia virus and vesicular stomatitis virus.
