The mechanism for the dual emission of 2-(4'-N,N-dimethylaminophenyl)imidazo[4,5-c]pyridine (DMAPIP-c) in protic solvents was investigated by synthesizing and studying its analogues. Theoretical calculations were carried out to corroborate the experimental findings. The deprotonation studies suggest that the enhancement in the TICT
