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.
