A regioselective synthesis of dihydropyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines is reported. The multicomponent reaction of readily available arylaldehydes, Meldrum´s acid, and aminopyrazole CAN508 afforded fused pyrazolopyrimidines in high yields. The reaction proceeded regioselectively via initial Michael addition of the exocyclic amino group to arylidene Meldrum´s acid intermediate followed by a ring closure at the endocyclic nitrogen of aminopyrazole. The regioselectivity of the reaction was determined by X-ray crystallography.
