Pyrazoles: ‘one-pot’ synthesis from arenes and carboxylic acids†
A rapid and efficient method for ‘one-pot’ synthesis of pyrazoles from (hetero)arenes and carboxylic acids via successive formation of ketones and β-diketones followed by heterocyclization with hydrazine has been developed. The utility of the RCOOH/TfOH/TFAA acylation system for intermediate production of ketones and 1,3-diketones is a key feature of this approach. The preliminary evaluation of the anticancer activity of the synthesized pyrazoles is performed.
