abstract

  • A regiorandom homopolymer of 3-alkyldithieno[3,2-b:2[prime or minute],3[prime or minute]-d]thiophene (P3ADTT) has been prepared by oxidative polymerization using Iron(iii) Chloride and oxygen as oxidants. The physical and electrochemical properties of the homopolymer were investigated and compared with those of P3HT. Its application in organic field-effect transistors showed annealing-free hole mobility up to 0.048 cm2 V-1 s-1 at room temperature and a significant thermally stable mobility of 0.13 cm2 V-1 s-1 at 200 [degree]C with a current on/off ratio of greater than 105.
