A highly regioselective three-component reaction of 2-bromo-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (BTP), aldehydes, and sulfonyl hydrazides provides 3-trifluoromethylpyrazoles. This metal-free, catalyst-free, and operationally simple approach offers mild conditions, a broad substrate scope, high yields, and valuable functional group tolerance.
