Abstract

image

Fluorescence switching of guest molecules confined in coordination polymer nanoparticles (CPNs) generated from nucleotides and lanthanide ions are used to construct multiconfigurable logic gates. Moreover, the potential of the material as fluorescent probe with large Stokes shift is demonstrated for cellular imaging. In this work the logic gate is integrated into the therapeutic agent and this will be highly beneficial in future molecular computing.
