All materials have their own intrinsic function which might be useful for human society. In most materials, it is usually their bulk properties which are utilized. The concept of a molecular system is derived from the understanding that the functionality of materials is based on the properties of their component molecules. The overall function of a material is the combined effect of the functions of each component molecule, and these component molecules are defined as molecular units.
