Fragmentation of small organic molecules by intense few-femtosecond X-ray free-electron laser pulses has been studied using Coulomb explosion imaging. By measuring kinetic energies and emission angles of the ionic fragments in coincidence, we disentangle different fragmentation pathways, for certain cases can reconstruct molecular geometry at the moment of explosion, and show how it depends on LCLS pulse duration.
