A number of fluorinated and fluorine-free pyrazole derivatives were designed and synthesized by a Spanish-US research group to increase understanding of mitochondrial dysfunction, which plays a key role in drug development. The synthetic pathway involves synthesis of 1,3,5-substituted pyrazole precursors, and coupling with key aldehyde intermediates. All microwave reactions were carried out using Biotage microwave reaction vials and Initiator microwave synthesizer.
The outcome was a range of biologically active fluorinated and fluorine-free analogues of commercial acaricide tebufenpyrad.
