Iodine contaning molecules and the technique of velocity map imaging are used to study the problem of dissociative ionization at intermediate intensities. It is shown that several new phenomena are observed. These phenomena include: a continuous distribution of recoil energies peaked at zero kinetic energy; a set of constant dissociative ionic states; and strong anisotropy of the fragment velocity distribution.
