    2'R)-Ethynyl uridine 3, and its (2'S)-diastereomer 10, are synthesised in a divergent fashion from the inexpensive parent nucleoside. Both nucleoside analogues are obtained from a total of 5 simple synthetic steps and 3 trivial column chromatography purifications. To evaluate their effectiveness against HCV NS5B polymerase, the nucleosides were converted to their respective 5'-O-triphosphates. Subsequently, this lead to the discovery of the 2'-β-ethynyl 18 and -propynyl 20 nucleotides having significantly improved potency over Sofosbuvir triphosphate 24. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.
