A simple, straightforward, reliable, and efficient method for the chemical synthesis of sodium salt of 2′-deoxynucleoside-5′-O-triphosphates (dNTPs), starting from the corresponding nucleoside, is described. This improved “one-pot, three-step” synthetic strategy involves the monophosphorylation of nucleoside, followed by reaction with tributylammonium pyrophosphate and hydrolysis of the resulting cyclic intermediate to provide the corresponding dNTP in good yields (65% to 70%). It is noteworthy that the protocol holds good for both the purine deoxynucleotides, such as 2′-deoxyguanosine-5′-O-triphosphate (dGTP) and 2′-deoxyadenosine-5′-O-triphosphate (dATP), and pyrimidine deoxynucleotides, such as 2′-deoxycytidine-5′-O-triphosphate (dCTP), thymidine-5′-O-triphosphate (TTP), and 2′-deoxyuridine-5′-O-triphosphate (dUTP).
