We present results from systematic Herschel/HIFI observations of molecular lines in the FIR/sub-mm from young planetary nebulae. The high spectral resolution provided by the hetorodyne spectrometer HIFI allows properly studying the line profiles, whose structure corresponds to the various kinematics of the most massive nebular components, including fast bipolar outflows and slow shells. In particular, we have studied the excitation properties of the high-velocity (dense) flows. In some cases we find typical temperatures of the fast gas over 100-200 K, though in others it remains cool, ≲30K. We argue that the thermodynamics of the molecule-rich bipolar outflows is driven by fast radiative cooling, after the passage of the shock that accelerated it.
