Abstract

Highly conjugated porphyrin derivatives, H2TP and ZnTP, are synthesized. J-aggregations of the H-aggregated dimeric porphyrin pairs are clearly observed by their single crystal structures that facilitate slip-stacked charge transport phenomenon. In particular, their SC-FETs show the highest field-effect mobilities of 0.85–2.90 cm2 V−1s−1. Furthermore, the ZnTP-based OPT displays a dramatic photoinduced current enhancement with a high photoresponsivity of 22 000 A W−1 under a very low light intensity (5.6 m W cm−2).
