The temporal evolution of the CN(X) products for the photodissociation of two acyl cyanide compounds in the ∼6.4 eV energy region was measured. Data was obtained that provide valuable insights into the photodissociation mechanism of acyl cyanide compounds. It was proposed that the photodissociation occurs via two discernible stages that bring about the two temporal components observed in the product transient growth.
