Properties of synthetic electroactive and photochromic molecular systems are described, with particular emphasis on microscopic processes controlling these properties. Both low-molecular weight and polymeric materials can be (and many have already been) used as conducting systems. The chemical flexibility of many molecular systems also allows for using them as information-processing materials, whose action is based on their photochromic properties. A relation between properties of individual molecules and those of macroscopic molecular systems allows one to envisage construction of molecular-scale devices. However, due to limitations associated with technological problems (construction of molecular-scale elements, their addressing, quantum-mechanical (size) limitations, etc.), the construction of such elements is still a problem that awaits solution.<>
