An overview is given on several means by which self-assembly processes can be utilized to pattern surfaces for technological applications. Hybridization of current nanofabrication techniques with selective chemical functionalization and methods are shown to be vital for the connection and application of molecular devices and also as an economical and parallel means to reach smaller scales in conventional electronic (and other) devices.
