(Figure Presented) The structural dynamics of the photodissociation of iodoform in methanol (see picture: H blue, C green, I violet) are revealed by means of time-resolved X-ray diffraction in solution (also called transient X-ray liquidography because of its analogy to crystallography). While spectroscopic studies suggest the existence of isoiodoform, no signals are observed for this intermediate species in time-resolved diffraction experiments performed using time delays between 100 ps and 3 μs.
