A novel effective method is reported for the preparation of 1-amino-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxylic acid derivatives by Fe(II)-catalyzed rearrangement of isoxazoles having (2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazono)methyl substituent at C4. The reaction proceeds smoothly for both E and Z isomers of 4-(hydrazonomethyl)isoxazoles, and this means it is not necessary to separate mixtures of E/Z-isomers of the hydrazones prepared by reaction of 5-methoxy/pirrolidino-4-carbonylisoxazoles and 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine. The rearrangement proceeds via the formation of an aziridine intermediate which can be isolated in certain cases. The 2-nitro group in the synthesized 1-[(2,4-dinitrophenyl)amino]-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxylic esters can be selectively reduced in two steps via acylation of the amino group followed by hydrogenation-deacylation using H2-Pd/C.
