Photolysis of fluorophenyldiazirine, incarcerated in hemicarcerand 2, affords fluorophenylcarbene, which attacks an aryl unit of the host, leading (after rearrangement) to a fluoromethoxy/phenyltropone derivative of the hemicarcerand. The incarcerated carbene is probably unstable at temperatures above 100 K.
