    • Abstract

       

      The synthesis of (5-chloro-1,3-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)(2-fluorophenyl) methanone (IV) asthe key intermediate in the preparation of zolazepam is reconsidered. The previous report for the preparationof this compound consist of acylation of 5-chloro-1,3-dimethylpyrazole (prepared from chlorination of 1,3-dimethyl-5-pyrazolone) by 2-fluorobenzoyl chloride (II). Herein, the preparation of (IV) via chlorination of(5-hydroxy-1,3-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)(2-fluorophenyl) methanone (III) which was prepared by acylationof 1,3-dimethyl-5-pyrazolone (I) by II is investigated. Different aspects of each step (reaction conditions, sideproducts and workup procedure) were considered and the products and side products were characterized via 1H NMR, 13C NMR and GC-MS techniques.
