We report infrared photodissociation spectra of manganese-CO 2 cluster anions, [Mn(CO 2) n] - (n = 2-10) to probe structural motifs characterizing the interaction between Mn and CO 2 in the presence of an excess electron. We interpret the experimental spectra through comparison with infrared spectra predicted from density functional theory calculations. The cluster anions consist of core ions combining a Mn atom with a variety of ligands, solvated by additional CO 2 molecules. Structural motifs of ligands evolve with increasing cluster size from simple monodentate and bidentate CO 2 ligands to oxalate ligands and combinations of these structural themes.
