The charge and spin thermoelectric transport in the system composed of a central molecule in contact with two normal electrodes in an external magnetic field of the Zeeman type have been studied. Such system can support pure spin current for applications in spintronics. By appropriate gate tuning of each of the dots it is possible to electrically control the direction of the spin current or tune the device operating as a thermoelectric generator to optimal performance.It has been shown that the device is poor energy converter in the parameter region where its thermoelectric figure of merit attains very large values.
