From complexes BPIP to NPIP in the phenanthroline series, a shift of 4nm is observed; however, in the bipyridine, it increases to 16 nm and then back to a relatively small shift of 6 nm for the biquinoline complexes.
The molecule -- a nanographene-rhenium complex connected via an organic compound known as bipyridine -- triggers a highly efficient reaction that converts carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide.
X-ray diffraction studies reveal the existence of dimeric aurophilic interactions as well as bipyridine pi-stacking.

Simultaneous attachment of withdrawing groups to bipyridine leads to strong stabilization of the lowest occupied molecular orbital localized on bipyridine.
Because two types of oxidations states, iron 2 and iron 3, are present in wine, the researchers looked at iron 2 and iron 3 chelators, including bipyridine, ferrozine, ethylenediaminetertraacetic acid (EDTA) and phytic acid.
