Synthesis of 4-(2H-[1,2,4]-Triazol-5-ylsulfanyl)-1,2-dihydropyrazol-3-one via Ring-Switching Hydrazinolysis of 5-Ethoxymethylidenethiazolo [3,2-b][1,2,4]triazol-6-one
MolBank 2018, 4, 1022
4-(1H-[1,2,4]-Triazol-5-ylsulfanyl)-1,2-dihydropyrazol-3-one (4) was synthesized with a yield of 55% via ring-switching hydrazinolysis of 5-ethoxymethylidenethiazolo[3,2-b][1,2,4] triazol-6-one (3) in ethanol medium. The initial 1H-[1,2,4]-triazole-3-thiol (1) was modified via a two-step reaction: S-alkylation with chloroacetic acid under Williamson reaction conditions, and further one-pot cyclization–condensation with triethylorthoformate in the acetic anhydride medium, yielding compound 3. The structures of compounds 3 and 4 were confirmed by LC-MS, NMR spectra and a single X-ray diffraction analysis (for compound 4).
