On the move: A series of dithienylthiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole (DTTzTz) semiconductors has been synthesized and investigated as active materials in solution-processed organic field-effect transistors. Spin-coated films of one of the derivatives showed a micrometer scale fibrillar texture and high field-effect mobilities (10−3 cm2 V−1 s−1) were observed. This molecule represents the first example of a highly soluble DTTzTz-based small organic compound for which reasonable FET behavior was observed.
