Ambipolarity in Benzobisthiadiazole-Based Donor–Acceptor Conjugated Polymers

A family of four new DA polymers, in which the acceptor moiety benzobisthiadiazole was paired with four different donor moieties, has been synthesized. Surpri­singly, all members of the family exhibit balanced ambipolar behavior, despite polymer to polymer mobilities varying from 10−4 cm2 V−1 s−1 to 10−1 cm2 V−1 s−1. Applications in single component CMOS integrated circuits are envisioned.
