Abstract: Within the context of our Herschel guaranteed time key program Mass-loss of Evolved StarS (MESS) we have obtained PACS and SPIRE spectra of several bright planetary nebulae, including NGC 7027 and NGC 6302. We have detected a range of molecular lines from the PDRs around these objects. The analysis of the spectra is still ongoing. In my talk I will present first results from our analysis, including modeling results using the photoionization / PDR code Cloudy.
