Reaction of diazomethane with some α-substituted acrylates

  • V. R. Likhterov


The reaction of methyl α-methoxy-, α-acetoxy-, and α-chloroacrylate with diazomethane proceeds in conformity with the -M orienting effect of the ester group. The resulting Δ1-pyrazolines are converted to 3(5)-carbomethoxypyrazole at room temperature (the reaction proceeds more readily on heating).
