We present what we believe to be the first implementation of nonequilibrium two-dimensional IR spectroscopy (2DIR) combining electronic excitation within the Fourier transform (FT) approach. Nonequilibrium 2DIR spectra of Mn 2 ( C O ) 10 and its photoproducts are obtained in two modalities: photoexcitation at 400 nm , either before a 2DIR probe or during the waiting time of the FT 2DIR measurement. Extending FT 2DIR to nonequilibrium systems offers insight into complex condensed-phase reaction dynamics.
