Alkylated Dinaphtho[2,3-b:2′,3′-f]Thieno[3,2-b]Thiophenes (Cn-DNTTs): Organic Semiconductors for High-Performance Thin-Film Transistors



original image

A series of alkylated dinaphtho[2,3-b:2′,3′-f]thieno[3,2-b]thiophenes (Cn-DNTTs) were developed as vapor-processable organic semiconductors for organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs). All the Cn-DNTT-based OTFTs showed typical p-channel FET characteristics and among them, C10-DNTT possessing two n-decyl groups gave excellent FET characteristics under the ambient conditions with mobility close to 8.0 cm2 V−1 s−1 and Ion/Ioff > 108.
