Deoxyribonucleoside analogues bearing acetylene group at the pseudo-5′-position and azido group at the pseudo-3′-position have been synthesized by transglycosylation reaction of deoxythymidine analogue with adenine, cytosine, and guanine nucleobases as nucleophiles. The structures of analogues were studied in crystalline state by X-ray crystallography as well as in solution phase by NMR spectroscopy and showed the puckering conformations similar to the natural congeners.
