We study small titanium oxide–CO2 cluster anions in vacuo to understand the fundamental interactions between TiOx and CO2 in the presence of an excess electron. Infrared spectra of [TiOx(CO2)y]− (x = 1–3, y > 1) were obtained using photodissociation spectroscopy and assigned through quantum chemistry calculations, identifying the formation of carbonato, oxalato, oxo, η2-(O,O), and carbonyl ligands in the core ions of these clusters, with carbonato ligands being the dominant ligand species.
