The vibrational relaxation of CH3F in mixtures of rare gases, O2, N2, H2, and D2 has been studied by means of laser induced fluorescence. The data can be interpreted qualitatively in terms of a combination of V→T/R energy transfer processes from both the ν3 and ν6 v=1 states of CH 3F. V→A processes seem to be dominant for heavy collision partners while V→T processes appear to dominate for light collision partners. The quantitative agreement between theory and experiment is also considered.
