Agrawal Farhana Rashid 4/5/2010 Objective: A one page report on the paper “Molecular, Chemical And Organic Computing” by Robert Stadler. a . Due to the inevitable roadblocks ensuing through traditional downsizing of silicon devices alternative technologies has been considered. Among them molecular  electronics has become very active field of research. Molecular electronics involves the replacement of a wire, transistor or other solid-sate electronic element with one or a few molecules. The author gives a brief description of the progress in three different fields, chemical computation (CC), single organic molecular computing (SOMC) and organic electronics (OE), while discussing the application of organic molecules or materials for information processing or storage. But the author thinks that, though CC is interesting on a basic research level but unlikely to result in competitive electronic devices. On the other hand, SOMC is nano scale computing, unlikely to result in competitive electronic devices....
