High-Performance Organic Field-Effect Transistors

A first-principles-based multiscale model is presented, which accurately predicts charge carrier mobility of different materials varying over ten orders of magnitude. The model allows for the decomposition of the carrier mobility into molecule-specific quantities. The availability of fast and parameter-free screening tools to compute macroscopic materials properties may enable in silico screening of the chemical compound space for the development of highly efficient optoelectronic devices.

Acene from a condensation: Four different bent benzo[a]naphtho[2,3-i]phenazines are efficiently synthesized by condensation of aromatic diamines with 1,2-naphthalenedione. The resultant azaacenes are spectroscopically and crystallographically characterized. Optical properties are studied and compared with those of the isomeric linear azaacenes.
