N-Methylation at the pyrazole ring by sequential treatment of 5-tributylstannyl-4-trifluoromethylpyrazole with LDA and iodomethane regioselectively provided the title compound in high yield. The addition reaction of 5-lithiated-4-trifluoromethylpyrazole with a wide range of electrophiles allowed easy and high-yielding introduction of substituents on position 5.
