Palladium-catalyzed direct arylation of 5-chloropyrazoles: a selective access to 4-aryl pyrazoles.
ABSTRACT The use of a temporary protection by a chloro group at C5 of pyrazoles allows the synthesis of the 4-arylated pyrazoles, which were previously inaccessible by palladium-catalyzed direct arylation, with complete regioselectivity and in high yields using in most cases as little as 0.5-0.1 mol % Pd(OAc)(2) as the catalyst with electron-deficient aryl bromides. Moreover, from 5-chloro-1,3-dimethylpyrazole, sequential catalytic C4 arylation, dechlorination, catalytic C5 arylation reactions allowed the synthesis of a 4,5-diarylated pyrazole derivative.

ABSTRACT: Selective synthesis of 4-(sulfonyl)-methyl-1H-pyrazoles and (E)-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazoles from N-allenic sulfonylhydrazones with sulfonyl group migrations has been developed. A key feature of these reactions is that the migrations of the sulfonyl groups to different positions can be controlled by changing the Lewis acids.Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry 04/2014; · 3.49 Impact Factor
