Polarized time-resolved X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) is used to characterize the sequential ballistic excited state dynamics of two B12 vitamers: cyanocobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. Excitation at 550 nm and 365 nm is used to resolve axial and equatorial contributions to the excited state dynamics.
