Design and synthesis of extended quinoxaline derivatives and their charge transport properties
A scalable and convenient strategy is described to synthesize extended conjugation quinoxaline derivatives from phenylene-ethynylene arrays. By tuning the solvent, the compounds display bright emission solvatochromism. Furthermore, the fabricated FET devices possess good performance characteristics, with mobilities of 0.47 cm2 V−1 s−1 and 0.99 cm2 V−1 s−1. The mobilities are higher than those of corresponding to the alkyl substituted compounds, which can be proven by grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXRD) measurement.
