24_23/2012Organic Semiconductors: Thiazole-Based Organic Semiconductors for Organic Electronics (Adv. Mater. 23/2012)

Thiazole-based organic semiconductors exhibit high performance in organic field-effect transistors (OFETs), which are a key element in materials such as the electronic paper shown in the image. On page 3087, Y. Li, X. Zhan, and co-workers review recent developments to thiazole-based organic semiconductors, particularly thiazole, bithiazole, thiazolothiazole, and benzobisthiazole-based small molecules and polymers, for applications in OFETs, solar cells, and light-emitting diodes.
