- We report the synthesis, characterization and behavior in field-effect transistors of non-functionalized soluble diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) core with only a solubilizing alkyl chain (i.e. -C16H33 or -C 18H37) as the simplest p-channel semiconductor. The characteristics were evaluated by UV-vis and fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, cyclic voltammetry (CV), thermal analysis, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and density functional theory (DFT) calculation. For top-contact field-effect transistors, two types of active layers were prepared either by a solution process (as a 1D-microwire) or thermal vacuum deposition (as a thin-film) on a cross-linked poly(4-vinylphenol) gate dielectric. All the devices showed typical p-channel behavior with dominant hole transports. The device made with 1D-microwiress of DPP-R18 showed field-effect mobility in the saturation region of 1.42 × 10-2 cm2/V s with I ON/IOFF of 1.82 × 103. These findings suggest that the non-functionalized soluble DPP core itself without any further functionalization could also be used as a p-channel semiconductor for low-cost organic electronic devices.© 2013 Elsevier B.V.
