The existence of absorption bands of gaseous chlorine fluoride 1.5 atm. at r.t. between 4600 and 5300 Angstrom units was confirmed. Results are presented in pictorial and tabular form. The dissociation energy of ClF was found to be 60.3 0.5 kcal in the case of decomposition to excited F and normal Cl, and 58.9 0.5 kcal in the case of decomposition to excited Cl and normal F. Based upon these results, the dissociation energy of molecular fluorine was determined to be 33.4 kcal or 30.6 kcal, depending on whether the value 60.3 or 58.9 was used.
