The cleavage of C–N single bonds of N-containing compounds provides either an excellent nitrogen source or an excellent carbon source. In this study, an efficient metalloporphyrins/H2O2 cleavage of C–N bonds of arylpyrazoles was investigated. The effects of different factors, including different catalysts, catalyst dosages, H2O2 dosages, reaction temperature and reaction time were studied. The experimental results showed that the optimal catalyst was FeTPPCl, and the yield of pyrazole derivatives could reach up to 12.3%, which was fourfold higher than hemin catalyzed reaction and closed to ceric ammonium nitrate catalyzed reaction, respectively. Compared with transition-metal-catalyzed and strong-oxidization cleavage of C–N bonds, this protocol is characterized by environmentally-friendly, stable, mild reaction conditions and simplified operation procedures.
