The three-step synthesis of 4-benzyl-1H-pyrazole-3,5-diamines 2 from commercially available aldehydes 3 is given. The Knoevenagel condensation was utilized to assemble the initial carbon framework, resulting in the benzylidenemalononitriles 4 which were directly transformed by the reduction of the electron deficient C=C bond to benzylmalononitriles 5. Subsequent cycloaddition of hydrazine with 5 afforded the desired pyrazoles 2. Due to the high similarity with 4-arylazo-1H-pyrazole-3,5-diamines, the biological activities of the 4-benzyl-1H-pyrazole-3,5-diamines 2 were evaluated while focusing on the inhibition of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), but no significant results were obtained.
