Abstract : Chemiluminescence has been studied for the reactions of fluorine atoms with a range of inorganic iodides. From the form of the resulting IF(B) vibrational state distributions, it is concluded that in all F/iodide systems IF(B) is produced by the recombination of a fluorine atom with an excited iodine atom. This is supported by the results of VUV laser-fluorescence probing and kinetic modelling. Keywords: Chemiluminescence, Iodine monofluoride, Iodine atoms, Fluorine atoms, Chemical laser, Laser fluorescence.
