A simple, highly efficient, 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of diazo compounds and alkynyl bromides gives 3,5-diaryl-4-bromo-3H-pyrazoles or the isomerization products 3,5-diaryl-4-bromo-1H-pyrazoles in good yields. The diazo compounds and alkynyl bromides were generated in situ from tosylhydrazones and gem-dibromoalkenes, respectively. The reaction system exhibited high regioselectivity and good functional group tolerance.
