Abstract

Purpose. The purposes were to study the kinetics of hydrolysis of 2′,3′,5′-triacetyl-6-azauridine (1) in aqueous solution (µ = 0.5) and to identify the main intermediates and products of the reaction. Methods. A stability indicating isocratic LC assay was used to study the rate of degradation of 1 A gradient LC assay was used to study the time courses of the degradants. The products of hydrolysis were isolated by preparative liquid chromatography and identified by 1H-NMR and CI-MS. The pKa value was obtained by potentiometric titration. Results. At 36.8°C, the pH-rate profile of 1 in water was adequately described by a four-term rate equation. The intermediates were identified as the primary and secondary di-acetates, and the primary and secondary mono-acetates. The final product was 6-azauridine. Conclusions. A simplified kinetic scheme could be used to describe the concentration-time profiles of 1, the intermediates and the final product.
