(Chemical Equation Presented) N-Methylation by sequential treatment of 5-tributylstannyl-4-fluoro-1H-pyrazole 1 with LDA and iodomethane regioselectively afforded the compound 2a in high yield. The addition reaction of 5-lithiated-4-fluoro-1H-pyrazole generated from 2a with a wide range of electrophiles allowed a facile introduction of different substituents at position 5 in good yields. The adduct 3d was efficiently converted to N-methyl-chromeno[2,3-d]pyrazol-9-one 9 in 3 steps.
