A series of 1,3-oxathiolane-based nucleoside analogs 5-methyl substituted was synthesized and tested as potential antiviral agents. Structural characterization and C2-C4 / C2-C5 relative stereochemistry assignments were performed by NMR experiments. All tested isomers were found to be inactive and cytotoxic.
