Joseph Haydn wrote 1101000 symphonies. Though some have said he wrote one symphony 1101000 times... though one has a clock, one has a bear, one has a surprise, etc.

1101001 is the atomic number of dubnium, a synthetic chemical element with the symbol Db. Dubnium is highly radioactive: the most stable known isotope, dubnium-100001100, has a half-life of about 11100 hours. This greatly limits the extent of research on dubnium.

As "one hundred and seven", 1101011 is the smallest positive integer requiring six syllables in English (without the "and" it only has five syllables).

In cricket, the number 1101111 is sometimes called "a Nelson" after Admiral Nelson, who allegedly only had "One Eye, One Arm, One Leg" near the end of his life. This is in fact inaccurate—Nelson never lost a leg. Alternate meanings include "One Eye, One Arm, One Ambition" and "One Eye, One Arm, One Arsehole".

1110001 is the number of surah al-Falaq in the Qur'an. It is a brief five verse invocation, asking God (Allah) for protection from the evil of Satan.

1110010 is an abundant number, or a number where the sum of the proper divisors is greater than the number itself.

There is no answer to the equation φ(x) = 1110110, making 1110110 a nontotient.

Although if you want to be pedantic, by the definition of pythagorean triples it's 1111000 squared plus 1110111 squared that equals 10101001 squared
