Abstract

A new pyrene-armed hexahomotrioxacalix[3]arene L has been synthesized, which exhibits a pronounced fluorescence enhancement response toward Cu²⁺ ions via a Zn²⁺ or Cd²⁺ triggered synergistic effect. Additionally, the L·Cu²⁺+ complex can subsequently serve as a sensor for F⁻ via anion-induced demetallation. The fluorescence responses by the input of Cu²⁺, Zn²⁺/Cd²⁺ and F⁻ can be constructed as a combinational logic gate which mimics a set of molecular traffic signals.
