Abstract: The {Cr8} metallacrown [CrF(O2CtBu)2]8, containing a F-lined internal cavity, shows high selectivity for CO2 over N2. DFT calculations and absorption studies support the multiple binding of F-groups to the C-center of CO2 (C⋅⋅⋅F 3.190(9)–3.389(9) Å), as confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
