In the last few years, thiophene-based materials, which are semiconductor and fluorescent compounds, have become a highly interdisciplinary field of research, with diverse studies ranging from the fabrication of electronic and optoelectronic devices to the selective detection of biopolymers. This article presents a survey of the papers published in the last two years and concludes with the authors' views on future developments.
