Palladium-catalyzed phosphonylation: synthesis of C3-, C4-, and C5-phosphonylated pyrazoles.

A palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling between 3-, 4-, and 5-halo-pyrazoles and H-phosphonates, H-phosphinates, and secondary phosphine oxides has been developed. This coupling reaction constitutes the first general method allowing the introduction of a great diversity of phosphorus substituents on the different carbons of the pyrazole ring in a one-step… CONTINUE READING
