The photochemistry of the triiodide anion has been investigated by femtosecond electron diffraction. The time-resolved signal indicates the presence of reaction products and large-amplitude coherent motion produced by participating species. To reconstruct the atomic detail of the reaction and identify the major contributors to the detected signal, we outline the approach for atomic-level reconstruction.
