Semiconducting alternating multi-block copolymers via a di-functionalized macromonomer approach

The development of fully-conjugated semiconducting block-copolymers is an important goal for organic electronics, but to date has been almost exclusively limited to materials containing poly(3-alkylthiophenes). Here we present the prototype of a class of fully-conjugated semiconducting block copolymers (prepared using a versatile route based on conjugated macromonomers and a cross-coupling polycondensation) that exhibit hole mobility in field effect transistors of the order of 0.1 cm(2) V-1 s(-1) and nanoscopic phase domain separation.
