Abstract: A symmetry concept is proposed that links the presence of vibronic structure in UV-visible spectra in d-systems, with the identification of a single photochemical reaction pathway. It is shown that the vibronic structure on some bands of the Pt(II) D-4h Complexes is due to the nondegenerate, ungerade b(1u) (xyz) vibration that points on an intramolecular twisting process for the photochemical cis-trans isomerization. The reaction coordinate is unambiguously defined in a coordinate system where x and y bisect the metal-ligand ML2 angle.
