The neutral OCCO2, which is predicted to be stable, has not yet been detected experimentally.

The OCCO2 anion is reported to be formed from the co-condensation of laser ablated metal atoms and electrons with CO and CO2 mixture in excess argon.
Attempts were made to produce a neutral OCCO2 of known bond connectivity.

Theoretical calculations indicate that there is a low-lying singlet and a triplet state of neutral OCCO2, but that both of them are unstable with respect to decomposition to ground state CO and CO2, and ground state CO and triplet CO2 respectively.
