Nucleosides take an important place in medicinal chemistry as the structural basis for the development of therapeutic agents. The chemistry of substituted base-modified nucleosides has been an interesting field of study over the last two decades owing to their biological properties. This mini-review summarizes recent efforts on the synthesis of C5- and C8-alkynyl base-modified pyranonucleoside analogues using Sonogashira cross-coupling reaction under microwave irradiation.
