Supramolecular ordering of difuryldiketopyrrolopyrrole: the effect of alkyl chains and inter-ring twisting

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the first study of supramolecular ordering of difuryldiketopyrrolopyrrole (DFDPP), an important building block for semiconducting materials, in 3D crystals and 2D monolayer films. Combined X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) and density functional theory (DFT) calculations underline the mutual roles of alkyl chains and pending aryl substituents in molecular planarity and packing.
