Alkynyl acylammoniums generated in situ from alkynyl acids are first used as electrophilic 3C synthons in a formal [3 + 3] annulation with 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds for regioselective synthesis of functionalized 4H-pyran-4-ones via a 4-(dimethylamino)­pyridine/Lewis acid dual-activation strategy. This protocol paves the way for further investigation of alkynyl acylammoniums as 3C synthons for construction of diverse heterocyclic skeletons.
