Decomposition of formyl fluoride on the lowest triplet potential energy hypersurface is studied using ab initio quantum chemical methods. Dissociation energies and the barrier to dissociation from the lowest triplet HFCO into $H(^2S)$ and $FCO(^2A')$ are reported. Results reveal that the barrier to dissociation into $F(^2P) + HCO (^2A')$ is very high. The triatomic radical, $FCO(^2A')$ decomposes into $F(^2P) +CO(^1\sum)$ from the high vibrational levels of the C-F stretch.
