Molecular order has proven to be a significant factor in the performance of devices based on organic semiconductors. Recent studies involving solubilized versus unsubstituted thiophene oligomers have demonstrated that modifications which increase orbital overlap in the solid state can improve device performance by more than an order of magnitude. 1 Similar studies on pentacene, a compound which has already demonstrated remarkable potential for device applications, 2 have also focused on… CONTINUE READING
