To a solution of 3-phenyl-5-methylpyrazole 1 [1] (7.11 g, 45 mmol) in ethanol (60 mL) was added formaldehyde 2 (3.85 g, 45 mmol, 35 %) and the mixture was refluxed for 90 minutes [2,3]. The reaction was continued at room temperature for 12h. The mixture was concentrated at reduced pressure. The residue was purified by recrystallization to afford the product 3 as a white solid.
Yield: 4.65 g, 55 %.
Melting point: 145-146 °C (CH3COCH3)
