Research Highlight:  Work from Prof. Martin Paterson had been published in the leading journal Angewandte Chemie International Edition (2012, 51, 11263) The work is a collaboration between synthetic inorganic chemistry, ultrafast spectroscopy and theory, "Two-Photon-Activated Ligand Exchange in Platinum(II) Complexes". It is shown that a novel Platinum complex can undergo ligand substitution after the non-linear absorption of two-photons. The result is important in designing Platinum based anti-cancer drugs. _
