Essay

One-dimensional organic semiconductors based on disc-like molecules such as phthalocyanie, triphenylene and hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene (HBC) have attracted enormous interests in organic electronics. Among them, the materials based on well-definded graphitic molecules (Figure 1) are exceptionally more interesting due to their large Π-system, higher supramolecular order, high one-dimensional charge carrier mobilites and easy solution processing. These materials can be used as alternative of conjugated oligonomers and polymers in the organic field-effect.....[full text; pdf file - 1.68MB]
