Treatment of N-propargyl-N'-tosylhydrazines with molecular iodine in the presence of NaHCO3 provided 5-substituted 4-iodo-1-tosylpyrazoles in good yields. In the presence of acetic acid, the corresponding 5-aryl-4-iodopyrazoles can be obtained in moderate yields. The reactions are simple and efficient transition-metal-free methods for the preparation of 5-substituted 4-iodo­pyrazoles.
