Selenoureas for anion binding as molecular logic gates

Author affiliations


The first example of a molecular logic gate based on selenourea/anion host–guest interaction that performs a ternary logic operation using an 1H-NMR easy to read response output is described here. Selenoureas are very versatile receptors for anion binding, capable of forming both mono- and bi-coordinated adducts at room temperature in solution.
