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.
