"Once" is determining time. It is replaced by when. Therefore "as" is not correct here.
C is not correct.

IMO A!
I focused on meaning as taught in a webinar by egmat.
Also it uses the correct tense and includes the word “Had”
A friend of mine gave me this amazing tip he said “whenever one action is done before another one in the past we use “had”

B omits “had” which kinda changes the meaning

C “As Dr. Benner and his colleagues combined..”
the word AS changes the meaning and (correct me if I am wrong) it suggests that action A (combined real atoms) and action B (bases didn’t act as he had hoped) happened at the same time.

D
“he had hoped and the artificial bases didn’t work.“
Again meaning changed and makes the sentence a bit awkward


E
Same as D
The start “when” is also wrong


Experts please correct my approach. Other than that I hope this helped
