Molecular spins have shown interesting quantum features, which make them potential candidates for the implementation of quantum information processing. New challenges related to possible applications in the broader class of quantum technologies are currently under discussion. Here, we revisit some key features trying to learn something from experiences in related fields. View Full-Text
