Synthesis of oligo(thienylfuran)s with thiophene rings at both ends and their structural, electronic, and field-effect properties.

Oligo(thienylfuran)s with thiophene rings at both ends (SOSOSOS, DE-SOSOS, DH-SOSOS, DE-SOSOSOS, and DH-SOSOSOS; S and O denote thiophene and furan rings, respectively, DE and DH denote diethyl- and dihexyl-substituted, respectively) were newly synthesized by repetitive Stille coupling reactions. The UV/Vis maximum absorptions of the oligomers, SO, SOSO… CONTINUE READING
