Chemiluminescent reactions of Ca*(3PJ) atoms with C6H5X (X = F, Cl, Br, I) and C6F5I molecules were studied in a beam-gas arrangement. The A –X 2 and B 2–X 2 transitions in calcium monohalide products have been observed for all targets except C6H5F. The total collision cross sections for the systems studied are about 10-18 m2, in agreement with the harpoon model, while the chemiluminescence photon yields are below 1%.
