The ferrioxalate actinometer is widely used as an analytical standard to determine the photon flux of light sources in photochemical reactors. Yet, the underlying mechanistic functioning of the actinometer at the molecular level is entirely unknown. Here, we present results from femtosecond UV-pump/mid-infrared-probe spectroscopy to reveal the elementary events including the primary C–C and Fe–O-bond breakages that follow an initial photon absorption by the ferrioxalate complex.
