The current status of our knowledge about the formation and evolution of dust and molecules in the environments of classical novae is reviewed. We discuss the chemistry that leads to the formation of diatomic molecules and nucleation sites, dust formation in nova winds, the properties and the processing of dust in nova environments, and the eventual fate of the dust. We also discuss the environment of nova progenitors, and what this can tell us about the pre-nova evolution of close binary systems.
