An alternative highly regioselective synthetic method for the preparation of 3,5-disubstituted 4-formyl-N-arylpyrazoles in a one-pot procedure is reported. The methodology developed was based on the regiochemical control of the cyclocondensation reaction of β-enamino diketones with arylhydrazines.
Structural modifications in the β-enamino diketone system allied to the Lewis acid carbonyl activator BF3 were strategically employed for this control. Also a one-pot method for the preparation of 3,5-disubstituted 4-hydroxymethyl-N-arylpyrazole derivatives from the β-enamino diketone and arylhydrazine substrates is described.


4-Formyl-N-arylpyrazole substrates occupy a prominent position in the field of organic synthesis since they are key intermediates in obtaining a wide range of biologically active compounds. Because of the synthetic versatility of the 4-formyl-N-arylpyrazole skeleton, their synthesis has been extensively explored. In an extension of their previously published research,
Rosa and co-workers at Universidade Estadual de Maringá described a one-pot synthetic method that regioselectively produced 3,5-disubstituted-4-formyl-N-arylpyrazoles . The β-enamino diketone starting materials were readily synthesized via published procedures. High regioselectivity was secured via the use of BF3·OEt2 as the carbonyl activator and a bulky amine as the enamine component. Acetonitrile proved to be the most suitable solvent for the reaction.
After an aqueous workup, the desired pyrazoles were obtained in excellent yields. A variety of functional groups were tolerated on the two aryl substituents. This operationally simple procedure afforded the 4-formyl-N-arylpyrazoles in high yields, regioselectively. Furthermore, the formyl group could be reduced in situ with sodium borohydride to generate the corresponding 4-hydroxymethyl-N-arylpyrazoles.
