Synthesis and charge transport studies of stable, soluble hexacenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Acenes larger than pentacene are predicted to possess enticing electronic properties, but are insoluble and prone to rapid decomposition. Utilizing a combination of functionalization strategies, we present stable, solution-processable hexacenes and an evaluation of their hole and electron transport properties.
