4-Ethynyl-1,2-dimethylpyrazolium salts were prepared by methylation of the corresponding 4-ethynyl-1-methylpyrazoles with trimethyloxonium tetrafluoroborate and were deprotonated to give the corresponding pyrazolium-4-acetylenides, which are mesomeric betaines. These can be represented as alkynyl- or mesoionic allenylidene-type resonance forms. Calculations and spectroscopic investigations were performed to determine the contribution of each canonical form to the overall structure. Ylides and N-heterocyclic carbenes are tautomers of the betaines. Their relative stabilities have been compared.
