Abstract

original image

Two organic n-type semiconducting compounds have been employed to controllably synthesize 1D microtubes or ultralong microwires via a simple solution process. Excellent electrical conductivity based on the ultralong microwires with the use of the interdigitated electrodes as well as high electron mobility of the microwires measured in ambient conditions by organic field effect transister (OFET) devices were achieved.
