Pyrazole dimer is observed for the first time in a free jet expansion. Its IR-active N–H stretching vibration is shifted by −269 cm−1 relative to the monomer. Along the 600 mm slit jet expansion, the average number density of pyrazole dimers is ∼ 1011 cm−3. Exploratory quantum chemical calculations including electron correlation are in good agreement with the observed frequency shift and confirm reciprocal hydrogen bonding with bent hydrogen bonds in a planar C2h structure, as postulated by W. Hückel 65 years ago in this journal. Nanomatrix isolation spectra can be obtained by using Ar as the carrier gas. The more strongly coupled vibrational dynamics in pyrazole trimer is illustrated.
