In the present study two new series of Hantzsch 1,4-dihydropyridine derivatives (1,4-DHPs) containing substituted pyrazole moiety (4a-f and 5a-f) were synthesized by the reaction of 3-aryl-1H-pyrazole-4-carbaldehydes with 1,3-dicarbonylcompounds (ethylacetoacetate and methylacetoacetate) and ammonium acetate. The newly synthesized compounds were characterized
