3-Amino-4-cyanopyrazole I reacts with hydroxylamine and with hydrazine to yield 1H,6H-3-aminopyrazolo[3,4-c]pyrazole (III and IV). Diazotized IV couples with 2-naphthol to give the arylazo derivative VI which cyclizes to 9H-naphthol[2,1-e]pyrazolo[3',4':3,4]pyrazolo[5,1-c]-[1,2,4]triazine VII by means of acetic acid. The pyrazol-5-ylthiourea obtained from I and phenyl isothiocyanate undergoes base-catalyzed cyclization to give pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidinethione derivative IX. Compound I reacts with cyclohexane in the presence of zinc chloride to give the tetrahydropyrazolo[3,4-b]quinoline derivative XI. The reaction of I with pyridine 1-oxide affords 4H,5H-pyrazolo[5',1':2,3] [1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]pyridine-3-carbonitrile XII.
