An efficient, general, one-pot, three-component procedure for the preparation of 3,5-disubstituted 1H-pyrazoles includes condensation of substituted aromatic aldehydes and tosylhydrazine followed by cycloaddition with terminal alkynes. The reaction tolerates various functional groups and sterically hindered substrates to afford the desired pyrazoles in good yields.
