Green solvents for organic thin-film transistor processing

Abstract

In this study, we explored a wide range of green solvents to process the semiconductor layer TIPS-PEN (6,13-bis(triisopropylsilylethynyl)pentacene), as well as to demonstrate potential generality, several p- and n-type organic semiconductors, for the fabrication of organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs). Our data demonstrate that several solvent options enable good semiconductor film-forming morphologies and for optimized TIPS-PEN TFTs mobilities of ~0.5-2 cm2/Vs, thus surpassing those of toxic chlorinated options. Furthermore, we employed a green cellulose-cinnamate gate dielectric to fabricate TIPS-PEN OTFTs where both the semiconductor and the dielectric were processed using green solvents demonstrating the feasibility of a more sustainable OTFT technology.
