A novel synthesis of AZT


A novel synthesis of AZT has been achieved from two commercial available products acetaldehyde and d-mannitol. The originality of the synthesis consists of using the powerful monovinylogation reagent, the 2-lithio-1-trimethylsiloxyethylene, and to introduce the thymine moiety and to build the furanose ring in the same and last step.
