In this talk the search for functional magnetic logic elements will be revised. Starting from one-magnetic-center over to two- and three-magnetic-center molecules, the necessary elementary mechanisms (spin-flip and spin-transfer) will be discussed to finally arrive at more complex functionalities such as actually constructing and preparing magnetic logic gates. Along the way some derived rules-of-thumb and important physical aspects, like the conservation of total angular momentum, will also be addressed.
