The dissociative charge-transfer reactions of CF4 with a beam of He+, Ne+ or H2+ ions have been investigated under single collision conditions. The translational energy of the ion beam was varied in the range of 700 to 5000 eV. The charge-transfer cross-sections and the product branching ratios varied with translational energy. This variation is interpreted as an initial formation of CF4+ D~ and C~ states by He+, CF4+ C~ state by Ne+ and CF4+ X~, Ã and B~ states by H2+. All of these states are then fully dissociated. © 1983.
