We report the use of time-resolved X-ray absorption spectroscopy in the ns–μs time scale to track the light induced two electron transfer processes in a multi-component photocatalytic system, consisting of [Ru(bpy)3]2+/ a diiron(III,III) model/triethylamine. EXAFS analysis with DFT calculations confirms the structural configurations of the diiron(III,III) and reduced diiron(II,II) states.
