To a cold solution of 5-trifluoromethyl-2,4-dihydropyrazol-3-one [1,2] (0.76 g, 5 mmol) in ethanol (25 ml) containing sodium acetate (0.82 g, 10 mol), p-tolyldiazonium chloride [ca. 5 mmol; prepared by adding a solution of sodium nitrite (5 mmol / 2 ml H2O) to an ice cold solution of p-toluidine in 2 ml conc. HCl] was added dropwise with stirring at 0-5°C. The reaction mixture was stirred at room temperature for three hours and the precipitated crude product was filtered, washed with water, dried and crystallized from ethanol to give 1.0 g (74%) of 2 as orange crystals.
