By using two independent and different methods, absolute values of the reaction cross-sections have been determined for the following chemiluminescent reactions Ca(3P,1D)+Cl4C(CHBr3)CaX*(A,B)(X=Cl,Br)+Cl3C(CHBr2) and Ca(1D)+H2OCaOH*+H Both chemiluminescence and laser-induced fluorescence spectra are reported. A comparison with related types of reactions is also presented.
