A Suitable Functionalization of Nitroindazoles with Triazolyl and Pyrazolyl Moieties via Cycloaddition Reactions


The alkylation of a series of nitroindazole derivatives with 1,2-dibromoethane afforded the corresponding N-(2-bromoethyl)- and N-vinyl-nitro-1H-indazoles. The Cu(I)-catalysed azide- alkyne 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition was selected to substitute the nitroindazole core with 1,4-disubstituted triazole units after converting one of the N-(2-bromoethyl)nitroindazoles into the corresponding azide. The reactivity in 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions with nitrile imines generated in situ from ethyl hydrazono-alpha-bromoglyoxylates was studied with nitroindazoles bearing a vinyl unit. The corresponding nitroindazole-pyrazoline derivatives were obtained in good to excellent yields.
