Abstract : Perfluoroethyl iodide and perfluoro-propyl iodide were photolyzed in the presence of oxygen. In both cases, the major product is CF2O. In the C2F5I system, it is produced with a quantum yield of about 2.0. CF3CFO is also produced, but is 100 times less important. With HI present, the oxidation is drastically modified, and the RO2 intermediate must live at least 10 to the minus 7th power second. (Author)
