C2F4, molecules have been for the first time directly proved to be generated in the reaction of vibrationally-excited molecules CF2HCl. The contribution of this reaction to CF2HCl multiphoton dissociation (MPD) products formation was shown to become predominant at the initial CF2HCl pressures about ten Torr. Also fast relaxation of the highly excited molecules CF2HCl on the product molecules C2F4 was discovered.
