|Abstract||The new thrusts in molecular logic are gathered together in this short review, while paying attention to the seeds from which these developments have arisen. The original demonstration of a few basic logic operations has now been extended to cover many of the one- and two-input varieties and even some of the three-input types. Many kinds of inputs and outputs have emerged, including various chemical species and some physical properties. The latter can include heat, light and, arguably, polarity. Reconfigurable logic has grown up to include a range of examples. Even superposable logic has proved possible with molecular systems. Numerical processors have flowered in recent years with several diverse approaches being revealed in recent years. Photochemical concepts such as photoinduced electron transfer (PET), internal charge transfer (ICT) and electronic energy transfer (EET) can be discerned among the designs in the field.
