CF4 and C8F18 collisionally remove excess energy, presumably vibrational, from CH2(1A1). Results from increasing proportions of C8F18 with CH2N2 and CH2CO precursors indicated that ΔHfo0[1CH2(1A1)] ≈ 101 kcal/mole. A simplified model indicates that 80-800 CF4 and 10-100 C8F18 collisions remove one bending vibrational quantum from CH2(1A1).
