1-Phenylpyrazole is lithiated exclusively at the C-5 position. Suitable 5-substituted 1-phenylpyrazoles undergo lithiation at the ortho position of the phenyl ring. 5-Thiomethyl-1-(o-tolyl)pyrazole is laterally lithiated at the ortho methyl group. In the case of 5-methoxymethyl-1-phenylpyrazole, lithiation occurs at both the C-5 methylene group and the ortho position of the phenyl ring with n-butyllithium, but essentially exclusive lithiation occurs at the C-5 methylene group with LDA.
