Multiple chemical information processing (i.e. encoding and decoding) was achieved by a Q-band absorption pattern-generating miniaturized chromophore “temoporfin” using a set of metal inputs in various combinations akin to biological and digital information processing systems. The distinct Q-band absorption intensities gener-ated as outputs at different wavelengths employing single instrumental method enabled us to perform as several complex logic 4-to-2 encoders and 2-to-3 decoders in an expeditious manner.
