Tracking inorganic photochemistry with high resolution poses considerable challenges. Here, sub-picosecond electronic and structural motions and MLCT/d-d intersystem crossing in a cationic iron-porphyrazine are probed using ultrafast transient absorption, stimulated Raman spectroscopy, and quantum calculations. By delineating photoinduced energy relaxation, strategies for extending the lifetime of MLCT state are discussed.
