Cyclization of substituted chalkones 3a,b with hydrazine hydrate followed by acylation of the resulting 3-aryl-4,5-dihydro-5-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1H-pyrazoles (4a,b) with alkanoic acids furnished 1-acyl-3-aryl-4,5-dihydro-5-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1H-pyrazoles (5a-d).  The compounds 5a-d are also directly prepared by refluxing 3a,b with hydrazine hydrate in alkanoic acids. Alkylation of 5a-d with ethyl chloroacetate have been yielded the corresponding aryloxyacetates 6a-d.  Aminolysis of the ester 6a-d have resulted in the formation of corresponding substituted aryloxyacetamides 7a-l.  Hydrazinolysis of esters 6a-d with hydrazine hydrate followed by cyclization of the resulting aryloxyacetic acid hydrazides 8a-d with aromatic acids in refluxing POCl3 have afforded the title compounds 9a-t. The compounds 3-9 have been evaluated for their in vitro growth-inhibitory activity against four fungal pests, Alternaria helianthus, Colletotrichum falcatum, fusarium oxysporum and Rhizoctonia solani.  Many of the compounds have displayed promising activity at different concentrations ranging from 313 – 100 mg L-1.
