Formation and decay of KrCl/KrCl excited states have been studied by following the time decay of KrCl (B) and KJ^CI fluorescence. C12, excited at 135 nm, reacts with Kr to form KrCl and subsequently KCl. The decay of KrCl B-state emission at 22 nm shows a two body dependence on C12 and Kr similar to those observed previously, along with a Kr2 dependence (~ 4x1 cm sec ), presumably leading to Kr2Cl formation. The Kr2Cl emission, monitored at 34 nm is strongly quenched by Cl2 (~ 6.7xl cm sec ), and has a long radiative lifetime (> 3 nsec).
