Abstract

Two isomeric dimethyl derivatives of dinaphtho[2,3-b:2′,3′-f] thieno[3,2-b]thiophene (2,9- and 3,10-DMDNTT) were synthesized and characterized. Their crystal structures were classified as unique three-dimensional (3D) herringbone arrangements. Of them, 3,10-DMDNTT preserves the same packing structure in the thin-film phase, and the film acted as a superior semiconductor channel in field-effect transistors with mobility up to 0.8 cm2 V-1 S-1.
