"Two novel ruthenium polypyridine complexes, [Ru(bpy)2Cl(BPEB)](PF6) and {[Ru(bpy)2Cl]2(BPEB)}(PF6)2 (BPEB = trans-1,4-bis[2-(4-pyridyl)ethenyl]benzene), were synthesized and their characterization carried out by means of elemental analysis, UV-visible spectroscopy, positive ion electrospray (ESI-MS), and tandem mass (ESI-MS/MS) spectrometry," reads the abstract, "as well as by NMR spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry."

But oh, those wacky chemists. You have got to see the accompanying illustration of the macroscale molecular complexes in question.
