22_30b/2010Induced Crystallization of Rubrene in Thin-Film Transistors (Adv. Mater. 30/2010)

The inside cover highlights a rubrene molecule with a polarized-light micrograph of a polycrystalline film of rubrene in the background. Polycrystalline thin-film transistors of rubrene can be fabricated by using 6,13-pentacenequinone (PQ) as a template layer and bilayer steps of octadecylphosphonic acid (ODPA) to tune the morphology of PQ. The details of this new strategy are reported by Qian Miao and co-workers on p. 3242.
