Fluorescent probe mimicking multiple logic gates and a molecular keypad lock upon interaction with Hg2+ and bovine serum albumin

Abstract

The output fluorescence exhibited by an intramolecular charge transfer fluorescent probe 1 providing different chemical inputs mimicked multiple logic gates. A molecular keypad lock security device authorizing password entries (logic memory) and capable of solving crossword puzzles has been constructed by computing the output emission of 1 upon chemical inputs of BSA and Hg2+. Based on logic operations the devised fluorescent keypad lock could be unlocked upon entering a correct sequence of password, ‘BHU’.
