AHMET ERDEM, HASAN GENC, NEJDET SEN, RAFET KILINCARSLAN, EMIN ERDEM THE SYNTHESIS AND REACTIONS OF NOVEL PYRAZOLE DERIVATIVES BY 4-PHENYLCARBONYL-5-PHENYL-2,3-DIHYDRO-2,3-FURANDIONE REACTED WITH SOME HYDRAZONES We report some novel pyrazole derivatives taking 4-phenylcarbonyl-5-phenyl-2,3-dihydro-2,3-furandione, 1. For this, 4-phenylcarbonyl-5-phenyl-2,3-dihydro-2,3-furandione, 1 was reacted with benzaldehyde(2- or 4-fluorophenyl)hydrazone to give 4-benzoyl-1-(2- or 4-fluorophenyl)-5-phenyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carboxylic acid 2a,b. Pyrazol derivative containing 2-fluorophenyl group 2a was converted into carboxylic chloride derivative 3a by thionyl chloride and then the compound 4a was obtained from reaction ammonia with compound 3a. In the next step, 4-benzoyl-1-(2-fluorophenyl)-5-phenyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carboxylic acid 2a was reacted with MeOH/H2SO4, EtOH/H2SO4, 2-nitrophenylhydrazine and 3-nitrophenylydrazine to give 5a,b and 6a,b pyrazol derivatives, respectively. The structures regarding all compounds synthesized were determined by the IR, NMR and elemental analysis method.
