Three bismuth complexes based on N-methyl-4,4′-bipyridinium (hMV+), (hMV)[Bi(hMV)Cl5] (1), and N-methyl-N′-oxide-4,4′-bipyridinium (MVO+), [Bi(MVO)X4(dmso)]·dmso [X = Cl (2), Br (3)], show strong photoluminescence in the solid state. Upon UV irradiation, 1 undergoes a photoinduced charge-transfer (PICT) process resulting in a color change from white to blue.
