A robust intramolecular cyclopropanation reaction was first performed on pyranopyrazole and pyranopyrimidine-dione derivatives to obtain spirocyclopropylpyrazolones and barbiturates, using iodosylbenzene (PhIO) or the combination of iodobenzene diacetate (PIDA)/molecular iodine (I2), under mild reaction conditions. Syntheses of functionally and stereochemically diversified, novel spiropyrazolone fused 2-iminothiophene and spiropyrazolone fused pyrroline scaffolds were also demonstrated via Lewis acid catalyzed highly diastereoselective (3 + 2) cycloaddition reactions of the synthesized spiro-cyclopropyl pyrazolones with phenyl isothiocyanate and benzonitrile, respectively.
