This chapter reviews the fundamental processes of STM molecular manipulation, desorption and intramolecular bond dissociation, produced by inelastic electron tunnelling. It is explained that the interplay between dissociation and desorption reaction pathways can be tuned by suitable adjustment of the electron tunnel conditions. Furthermore, it is shown that non local reactions involving the transfer of energy or charges across surface states can also produce reactions at distance.
