Synthesis of 3-chloro-, bromo-, and iodo-3-deazainosines (6-8) can be done by treatment of the 3-deazainosine derivative (2) with N-halosuccinimides. Treatment of the 5-formylimidazole derivative (11) with vinylmagnesium bromide gave 5-(1-hydroxy-2-propenyl)imidazole derivative (12), followed by fluorination and appropriate manipulations to cyclize, affording 3-fluoro-3-deazainosine (18). Although free rotation around the glycosyl linkage in 3-deazainosine (1) and 18 was observed, those of 6, 7, and 8 were rather fixed in the anti-conformation as analyzed by nOe experiments.
