Abstract

This paper presents anthraquinone and benzimidazole based hybrid molecular architect as the state of the art for multifunctional molecular logic circuits. The moleculator exhibits differential output behavior towards F, Zn2+ and Cu2+ ions to provide opportunities for elaboration of XOR, INHIBIT, XNOR, AND, OR, NOR, logic functions and their integrated logic functions half-adder, half-subtractor and comparator within a single molecule. These integral logic functions can be reprogrammed by self-annihilation or by another additional input in the same cell. This single molecule behaves uniquely where different logic functions can be operated and reset by using different inputs and outputs.
