A convenient and efficient synthesis of spiro-fused pyrazolin-5-one N-oxides starting from readily available 1-carbamoyl-1-oximylcycloalkanes is developed. This general protocol features a novel and facile way for access to the five-membered azaheterocycles by formation of a new N−N single bond. The key cyclization step utilizes the formation of an N-oxonitrenium intermediate, mediated by the hypervalent iodine reagent PIFA, and its subsequent intramolecular trapping by the amide moiety under rather mild experimental conditions.
