In an operationally simple, mild and efficient one-pot synthesis of 2H-indazoles from commercially available reagents, ortho-imino-nitrobenzene substrates, generated via condensation, undergo reductive cyclization promoted by tri-n-butylphosophine to afford substituted 2H-indazoles. Various electronically diverse ortho-nitrobenzaldehydes and aromatic as well as aliphatic amines were examined.
