Pyrazole is a five-membered heterocyclic compound and is one of the important heterocycles in the fields of medicine and pharmacology. Here, we demonstrate the reactivity of symmetrical enaminodiketones 814 with substituted hydrazines. When using alkylhydrazines, if the substituent size of the alkyl group is small, it is possible to selectively synthesize 1-substituted 4-aroyl-5-arylpyrazoles and their regioisomers, 1-substituted 4-aroyl-3-arylpyrazoles, by choosing the solvent (EtOH or toluene). When they react with bulky substituted hydrazines (e.g., cyclohexyl, phenyl, or pyridyl), only 1-substituted 4-aroyl-5-arylpyrazoles are selectively obtained.
