    The synthesis of novel 7-amino-substituted pyrazolo[1,5-a][1,3,5]triazine-8-carbonitriles was achieved via a three-component reaction of 3-amino-substituted 5-aminopyrazole-4-carbonitriles, cyanamide and triethyl orthoformate under microwave irradiation. Under catalyst-free conditions, this three-component reaction accommodated a generous diversity of amino substituents making it ideal for the generation of compound libraries for drug discovery processes.
