A one-step heterocyclization of o-nitrobenzylamines to 3-alkoxy-2H- indazoles is reported. The electronic nature of the nitrophenyl group, the steric and electronic nature of the R1-functionalized benzylic amine, and the nature of the alcoholic solvent affect the efficiency of this heterocyclization reaction (∼40-90%).
