We demonstrate a strategy for designing high-performance, ambipolar, acene-based field-effect transistor (FET) materials, which is based on the replacement of C-H moieties by nitrogen atoms in oligoacenes. By using this strategy, two organic semiconductors, 6,13-bis(triisopropylsilylethynyl)anthradipyridine (1) and(More)
Two series of new oligothiophene-pentacene hybrid compounds were successfully synthesized and characterized, which consist of pentacene and anthradithiophene skeletons modified by different oligothienyl groups at 6,13 sites or 5,11 sites, respectively. Their optical, thermal, and electrochemical properties show regular variations with the length change of(More)
In this work, we demonstrate a simple and reliable method for selectively separating single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). This method is based on a preferable adsorption of linear polynuclear aromatic dyes on metallic SWNTs. With different adsorption amount of soluble dyes, the metallic and semconducting SWNTs show different solubility in solvents, hence(More)
Separation of metallic and semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is of great importance for SWCNT-based nano-electronics. We propose a tandem extraction strategy for efficient separation of different types of SWCNTs. This strategy is based on chiral angle discriminated adsorption of soluble condensed benzenoid aromatic molecules on SWCNTs,(More)
