Abstract
Organic semiconductors are expected to play an important role in low-cost and energy-efficient electronic products, especially transistors. Our concept to improve the active materials is to introduce curvature into the polymer backbone. The beneficial contribution of the curvature is shown by a series of five isomeric polymers which demonstrate that an intermediate degree of curvature is the optimum compromise between good solubility and high order in the film. In this way, a polythiophene is developed that is easily synthesized, well soluble, exhibits high charge-carrier mobility using mild annealing conditions, and is stable under operation. When processed on a flexible substrate, it shows average mobilities as high as 0.5 cm2V-1s-1 .
