9-[c-4-(1,2-Dihydroxyethyl)cyclopent-2-en-r-1-yl]-9H-adenine , an isomer of BCA, has been synthesized from Diels-Alder adducts prepared by the reaction of 2-iminomalonates with cyclopentadiene under high pressure. The synthetic method involves a novel C-N bond cleavage reaction by NaBH4-K2CO3 (RRA reaction conditions) and has wide applicability for the synthesis of various carbocyclic nucleosides.
