Here we present the synthesis and characterization of poly[9-(4-alkylphenyl)carbazole-3,6-diyl] and poly[1,3-bis(3′-alkylcarbazole-9′-yl)-5-alkylphenylene-6′,6″-diyl]. The amorphous solid state structure, reasonably good field effect mobility and on/off ratios of these novel carbazole-based polymers make them promising candidates as hole conducting materials for printed organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
