Naphthalene and perylene diimides – better alternatives to fullerenes for organic electronics?

Author affiliations

Abstract

The LUMO levels of rylene diimides are highly comparable to those of fullerenes but this class of molecules offers tunability of both HOMO and LUMO levels and the related band gap by either simple substitution at the aromatic core or annulation to give expanded π-scaffolds. In this article we highlight the most outstanding achievements during the last decade in terms of charge carrier mobility for organic thin-film and single crystal field-effect transistors as well as photovoltaic performance for both small molecule and polymeric compounds.
