Two-Photon-Induced Chemical Reactions in Liquids

Volume 44, Number 1 (Jan. 1990) Page 115-117

Chen, C.H.; McCann, M.P.

The two-photon absorption process was used to obtain the first observation of particle precipitation in liquids between halogen-containing organic compounds and silver-containing inorganic compounds. Photo-detachment of an electron from negative ions was found to be one important mechanism that led to these chemical reactions. Similar processes may lead to many new multiphoton-induced chemical reactions between organic and inorganic compounds.
