School of Chemistry, University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Fife KY16 9ST, UK.

Cyclo-addition reactions between 3-(5-ar-yloxy-3-methyl-1-phenyl-1-pyrazol-4-yl)-1-(thio-phen-2-yl)prop-2-en-1-ones and thio-semicarbazide leads to the formation of reduced 3,4'-bi-pyrazole-2-carbo-thio-amides. Further cyclo-addition of these inter-mediates with either diethyl acetyl-enedi-carboxyl-ate or 4-bromo-phenacyl bromide leads to reduced 3,4'-bi-pyrazoles carrying oxo-thia-zole or thia-zole substituents, respectively. The structures of two representative inter-mediates and two representative products established unambiguously the regiochemistry of the cyclo-addition reactions. Read More

Chemistry 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Hokkaido University, Institute for Chemical Reaction Design and Discovery (WPI-ICReDD), Kita 21, Nishi 10, Kita-ku, 001-0021, Sapporo, JAPAN.

A three-component reaction (3CR) for the synthesis of difluoroglycine derivatives has been achieved using amines, difluorocarbene (generated in situ ), and the abundant, inexpensive, and non-toxic C1 source CO 2 . Various tert -amines and pyridine, (iso)quinoline, imidazole, thiazole, and pyrazole derivatives were incorporated, and the corresponding products were isolated in solid form without purification using column chromatography on silica gel. Detailed reaction profiles of the 3CR were obtained via computational analysis using DFT calculations, and the results critically suggest that simple ammonia is not applicable to this reaction.

Asynchronous Double Schiff Base Formation of Pyrazole Porous Polymers for Selective Pd Recovery.

Adv Sci (Weinh) 2021 Apr 2;8(8):2001676. Epub 2021 Mar 2.

Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) 291 Daehak-ro, Yuseong-gu Daejeon 34141 Korea.

Pyrazole-linked covalent organic polymer is synthesized using an asynchronous double Schiff base from readily available monomers. The one-pot reaction features no metals as a building block or reagent, hence facilitating the structural purity and industrial scalability of the design. Through a single-crystal study on a model compound, the double Schiff base formation is found to follow addition, a kinetically favored product, suggesting that reactivity of the amine and carbonyls dictate the order and geometry of the framework building.

Medicinal & Process Chemistry Division, CSIR-Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow-226031, India. and Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR), Ghaziabad-201002, India.

A base-mediated reaction of triaryl/alkyl pyrylium tetrafluoroborate salts with α-diazo-phosphonates, sulfones and trifluoromethyl compounds affords the corresponding functionalized pyrazole-chalcones as 5-P-5 and 3-P-3 tautomeric mixture. The reaction proceeds through an initial nucleophilic addition of diazo substrates to pyrylium salts followed by a base-mediated pyrylium ring-opening and intramolecular 1,5-cyclization to afford formal 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition products. The products underwent a Nazarov-type cyclization upon hydride reduction followed by acidic-workup, furnishing the corresponding indenyl-pyrazoles in high yields. Read More
