Dissolving metal reduction like Na/NH3, UV photolysis and thermal come to mind.

Just a warning on this, as better to be safe than sorry. Please be aware that dichlorodifluoromethane decomposes into phosgene gas--a highly toxic and deadly nerve agent--at temperatures above about 1000 deg. F. Also free chlorine gas can be liberated under the right conditions as well. Please be careful!

how does that decompose into phosphine? where would the phosphorus come from?

I think he said phosgene which is O=C(Cl)2, the fully chlorinated analog of formaldehyde.

It could happen in the presence of oxygen.
