The main primary process of photochemical decompositions of Hg(OCOCF3)2 and CF3HgOCOCF3 in the solid phase between −196 and +20°C is decarboxylation, accompanied by the formation of CF3 radicals, which near the temperature of liquid nitrogen react in the lattice to form trifluoromethyl derivatives of mercury, and at higher temperatures diffuse and dimerize to C2F6.
