The output of a continuous-wave carbon dioxide laser was used successfully for the dissociation of methylphosphonic difluoride. End product analysis using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy revealed that the phosphorus-to-carbon bond was cleaved, yielding the products methane, ethene, ethyne, hydrophosphoryl difluoride, and a mixture of phosphorus compounds. These results are presented and discussed. The dissociation was optimized. A reaction mechanism of the dissociation is suggested.
