BPTs: thiophene-flanked benzodipyrrolidone conjugated polymers for ambipolar organic transistors

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of novel thiophene-flanked benzodipyrrolidone (BPT)-based alternating copolymers are synthesised, their optical and electrical properties evaluated. The BPT unit promotes a conjugated, planar polymer backbone, with a low bandgap, primarily due to low lying LUMO energy levels. Copolymerisation with thiophene exhibits well balanced ambipolar organic field-effect transistor performance, with electron and hole mobilities 0.1 and 0.2 cm2 V−1 s−1, respectively.
