The importance of molecular conformational changes as switching mechanisms in proposed molecular electronic devices is stressed. Primarily two types of phenomena are considered a molecular tunnelling analogue to a NOR gate and a variety of soliton phenomenon. These include soliton switching, soliton valving, proton tunnelling and soliton generation, soliton reversal, and soliton transport as a memory device. Also briefly considered is the proposed uses of the valence-bonded surface contact and the very small electrochemical cell in the controlled synthesis of molecular devices. Author
