Patil, Hemlata, Chang, Jingjing, Gupta, Akhil, Bilic, Ante, Wu, Jishan, Sonar, Prashant, & Bhosale, Sheshanath V. (2015) Isoindigo-based small molecules with varied donor components for solution-processable organic field effect transistor devices. Molecules, 20(9), pp. 17362-17377.
Two solution-processable small organic molecules, (E)-6,6′-bis(4-(diphenylamino)phenyl)-1,1′-bis(2-ethylhexyl)-(3,3′-biindolinylidene)-2,2′-dione (coded as S10) and (E)-6,6′-di(9H-carbazol-9-yl)-1,1′-bis(2-ethylhexyl)-(3,3′-biindolinylidene)-2,2′-dione (coded as S11) were successfully designed, synthesized and fully characterized. S10 and S11 are based on a donor-acceptor-donor structural motif and contain a common electron accepting moiety, isoindigo, along with different electron donating functionalities, triphenylamine and carbazole, respectively. Ultraviolet-visible absorption spectra revealed that the use of triphenylamine donor functionality resulted in an enhanced intramolecular charge transfer transition and reduction of optical band gap, when compared with its carbazole analogue. Both of these materials were designed to be donor semiconducting components, exerted excellent solubility in common organic solvents, showed excellent thermal stability, and their promising optoelectronic properties encouraged us to scrutinize charge-carrier mobilities using solution-processable organic field effect transistors. Hole mobilities of the order of 2.2 × 10−4 cm2/Vs and 7.8 × 10−3 cm2/Vs were measured using S10 and S11 as active materials, respectively.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
