(Figure Presented) The electrical performance of organic semiconducting polymers in field-effect transistor devices is now sufficient for initial low complexity circuit applications. To achieve high performance, either operation in an inert atmosphere or a hydrophobic surface treatment and annealing step is typically required. In this communication we report a strategy to prepare fully air stable, amorphous semiconducting polymers which can achieve charge carrier mobilities in the range of 0.04 cm2/(V s), remaining over a period of over 3 months in ambient conditions.
