Abstract: A number of 6-O-alkylsubstituted deoxy- and riboguanosines of potential carcinogenic and mutagenic activity have been synthesized by the reaction of deoxy- and riboguanosine with phenylchlorotyioformate followed by N-isobutyrylation, 5'-dimethoxytritylation and 3'-phosphorylation. The fully protected 6-O-alkyl guanosine-3'-phosphates thus obtained are versatile G-units for the oligonucleotide phosphotriester synthesis.
