Abstract

Blends of chemically readily accessible, small-molecular arylacetylene derivatives with poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) are presented that allow reliable solution processing of field-effect transistor (FET) architectures with electronic characteristics comparable to those of the neat semiconductors. We demonstrate that having the chemical means and corresponding processing protocols to control solid-state microstructures by either adjusting the chemical nature of the organic semiconductor, blend composition or deposition temperature, permit straight-forward comparison between materials and allow probing if electronic characteristics are affected by the chemical structure of the organic semiconductor and/or selected processing protocols.
