1-Substituted 5-aminopyrazole-4-carbonylazides were prepared from the appropriate 5-aminopyrazole-4-carboxylates. The acyl azides undergo a Curtius rearrangement followed by quenching with alcohols to form the corresponding carbamates. The 1-substituted 5-amino-4-benzyloxycarbonylaminopyrazoles were unblocked by catalytic hydrogenolysis to give the desired 4,5-diaminopyrazoles. These 4,5-diaminopyrazoles were immediately condensed with glyoxal to afford 1-substituted pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyrazines.
