The HeI and HeII photoelectron spectra of CF3Cl, CF3Br, CF3I, CF3CCH, CF3CCl3, CF3COOH, CF3COOCH3, CF3COOCF3, CF3COOH2COCH3, (CF3)2CHOH, CF3CH2OH, trifluoromethyltoluene, and 2, 4, 6‐tris(trifluoromethyl)‐1, 3, 5‐triazine have been recorded under low and high resolution. Special attention has been paid to ionizations arising from MO's with a significant contribution of fluorine atomic orbitals. HeII/HeI intensity comparisons were also useful in the assignment of “CF3‐group orbitals.” The results indicate that the electronic structure of the CF3 group remains rather unaffected by the rest of the molecule.
