Aim and Objective: In this review, we summarize the current state of varied multicomponent/onepot
protocols for synthesis of vital pyrazole derivatives under varied conditions, including in absence and presence
of catalysts, solvent and solvent-free conditions, and using other techniques such as microwave irradiation
and ultrasonication. In broad sense, this review covers the publications up to 2015.
Material and Method: All the pyrazole derivatives were synthesized by using various techniques such as ultrasonication,
heterogeneous catalysts, microwave irradiation and homogeneous catalyst systems.
Results: As convincingly demonstrated by the synthetic approaches reported in this review, MCRs have facilitated
many new methodologies with significant advantages for efficient and well organized synthesis of varied
pyrazole derivatives. The methodology involved variety of options for catalysts that can be chosen using different
solvents or solvent-free conditions and/or using alternative energy-efficient options such as microwave
irradiation and sonification. This review brings together ample material about synthesis of varied pyrazole derivatives
that may have prodigious scope, in drug design and therapeutics. It is anticipated that research efforts
in this direction will endure in the search for novel, atom efficient, small molecules with excellent drug-like
Conclusion: As convincingly demonstrated over a selection of studies reported in this review, the uses of
MCRs have facilitated many new methodologies with significant advantages for efficient and well organized
synthesis of varied pyrazole derivatives. The diversity in approach, variation in transformations and scope of
modification of pyrazoles were holistically summarized in this review.
