The remarkable ability of pyrazolo[1,2-b]phthalazines as a nitrogen-containing heterocycles with fused scaffold of bridgehead hydrazine and pyrazole moieties have generated substantial interest in the pharmaceutical industry and in the diversified field of synthetic chemistry. The present mini-review focuses on current progress in the synthesis of 1H-pyrazolo[1,2‑b]phthalazine-5,10-dione derivatives using multi-component reaction of phthalhydrazide, aldehyde and malononitrile and covers publications from 2015 up to now.
