In the recent few years, the emergence of nucleosides containing modified sugar ring
or modified base moiety has gained much attention due to their enhanced biological activities as
compared to parent nucleosides containing 5-carbon ribose or deoxyribose sugar ring. In this
review, we highlight the recent advances in synthesis and biological activities of nucleosides
containing modified sugar rings reported between years 2010 to 2015.
Keywords: Functionalized nucleosides, modified nucleosides, fluorinated nucleosides,
selenonucleosides, thionucleosides, biologically active nucleosides.
