The photoinduced isomerisation reaction of dithizionatophenyl-mercury(II) in solution by femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy is investigated. The C=N isomerisation from the cis reactant to trans product, results in a significantly red shifted absorption band for the product compared to the reactant. We discuss ultrafast photoinduced isomerisation along a reaction pathway.
