An important anticancer nucleosides intermediate (2R,3S,4S,5R)-2-(acetoxymethyl)-5-(3-bromo-5-(methoxycar-bonyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl diacetate was synthesized by directly coupling the bromotriazole with the protected ribose sugar, and have given the corresponding product in moderate yield. Its structure and conformation were confirmed by single crystal X-ray diffraction.
