Nucleoside Analogues

Nucleoside analogues (NAs) are a class of compounds known for their antiviral, antibacterial, anticancer, and antifungal properties. They primarily target the replication machinery of pathogens while potentially affecting host cells. NAs have proven effective in treating various viral diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis. In the subsequent chapters synthesis and chemistry of NAs are explored, offering an exhaustive introduction to this fascinating class of compounds.
