Vilsmeier–Haack reaction of (E)-1-(1-(3,5-difluorophenyl)ethylidene)-2-phenylhydrazine (1) using dimethyl formamide in excess of phosphorous oxychloride by conventional method, resulted in the synthesis of title compound 3-(3,5-difluorophenyl)-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazole-4- carbaldehyde (2) in good yield and high purity. Structure characterization of the novel title compound was done by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectral analysis.
