The thin film molecular packing motifs of several new benzo[d,d]thieno[3,2-b;4,5-b]dithiophene (BTDT) derivatives have different molecular packings from their bulk crystals. Co-existence of strained lattices with their single crystal forms is speculated to have a significant effect on organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) performance.
