Synthetic methods for the preparation of 2′-deoxyguanosine-C8 (dG-C8) adducts with several mutagenic and carcinogenic amino- or nitro-arenes were developed using the palladium-mediated cross-coupling reaction of protected 8-amino-dG with bromoarenes in around 80% yields, followed by conventional deprotection procedures. This approach can be applied to preparation of a variety of authentic dG-C8 adducts with amino or nitro-arenes.
