Chemical Synthesis of Nucleoside Analogues examines the application of synthetic methodologies to the preparation of compounds of biological interest, including the synthesis of nucleic acids on pre-existing nucleic acid templates, assembling RNA, or DNA. This comprehensive compendium culls expert contributions that highlight the structural components of nucleosides (supported by spectral data) and their modification as well as the synthetic strategies based on chemical approaches. The text serves undergraduate students, specialists, and researchers, allowing access to a variety of compounds without forgetting the biological importance of the target compounds.

Author Biography

PEDRO MERINO, PhD, is the Director of the Department of Synthesis and Structure of Biomolecules of the Institute of Chemical Synthesis and Homogenous Catalysis at the University of Zaragoza. Dr. Merino has authored more than 200 publications, including several reviews and book chapters. His research spans asymmetric synthesis, target-oriented synthesis, organometallic chemistry, and asymmetric metal-assisted and organic catalysis. Recently, he has been investigating the use of computational chemistry to better understand reaction mechanisms.
