Molecular electronics is a branch of Nano technology that utilizes single molecules or Nano scale integration of single molecules, to develop electronic components. Moreover, molecular electronics is an interdisciplinary concept which focuses and includes the areas of chemistry, physics, and materials science.

Molecular electronics involves fabrication of electronic components through detailed study of molecular building blocks. Molecular electronics offers molecular level development and control of electronics components that are very small in size and offers improved functionalities in compact form factors thereby attracting research and development focused on mass production of everyday electronics devices.

Furthermore, the ultimate goal of molecular electronics, which focuses to incorporate molecular components into electronic circuit units, is to generate functional molecular electronic devices using individual or ensemble molecules to fulfill the increasing technical demands of the miniaturization of traditional silicon-based electronics.

The molecular electronics market is expected to be driven by the compact form factors of these devices. The size scale of molecules involved in molecular electronics ranges between one nano meter and 100 nano meters. This offers advantages over the conventional silicon based electronics circuits and devices in critical applications, for instance micro robots for healthcare applications.
