The invention relates to mono-, oligo- and polymeric compds. comprising substituted triaryl- and triheteroaryl benzene groups and their copolymers. The invention further relates to the methods of their synthesis, to org. semiconducting materials and blends, formulations and layers comprising them, and to electronic devices, like org. field effect transistors (OFETs) and org. photovoltaics (OPVs), comprising them.

Fei Z, Kim Y, Smith J, et al., 2012, Comparative Optoelectronic Study between Copolymers of Peripherally Alkylated Dithienosilole and Dithienogermole, Macromolecules
Here we report a simple methodology for the synthesis of dithienosilole and dithienogermole monomers in which the necessary solubilizing long chain alkyl groups are incorporated into the peripheral 3,5-positions of the fused ring. We report four novel monomers in which methyl or butyl groups are attached to the bridging Si and Ge atom. Copolymers with bithiophene were synthesized by a Stille polymerization in high molecular weight. We report the optical, electrical, electrochemical and morphological properties of the resulting polymers. We find that the nature of the bridging heteroatom (Si or Ge) has only a minor influence on these properties, whereas the nature of the alkyl chain attached to the bridging atom is found to have a much larger effect.
Shahid M, McCarthy-Ward T, Labram J, et al., 2012, Low band gap selenophene-diketopyrrolopyrrole polymers exhibiting high and balanced ambipolar performance in bottom-gate transistors, Chemical Science, Vol: 3, Pages: 181-185, ISSN: 2041-6520
We report the synthesis of a selenophene-diketopyrrolopyrrole monomer and its co-polymerisation with selenophene and thieno[3,2-b]thiophene monomers by Stille coupling. The resulting low band gap polymers exhibit ambipolar charge transport in organic field effect transistors. High and balanced electron and hole mobilities in excess of 0.1 cm2 V-1 s-1 were observed in bottom-gate, bottom-contact devices, suggesting that selenophene inclusion is a promising strategy for the development of ambipolar organic semiconductors.
Jamieson FC, Domingo EB, McCarthy-Ward T, et al., 2012, Fullerene crystallisation as a key driver of charge separation in polymer/fullerene bulk heterojunction solar cells, Chemical Science, Vol: 3, Pages: 485-492, ISSN: 2041-6520
Solution processed polymer/fullerene blend films are receiving extensive attention as the photoactive layer of organic solar cells. In this paper we report a range of photophysical, electrochemical, physicochemical and structural data which provide evidence that formation of a relatively pure, molecularly ordered phase of the fullerene component, phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM), may be the key factor driving the spatial separation of photogenerated electrons and holes in many of these devices. PCBM crystallisation is shown to result in an increase in its electron affinity, providing an energetic driving force for spatial separation of electrons and holes. Based upon our observations, we propose a functional model applicable to many organic bulk heterojunction devices based upon charge generation in a finely intermixed polymer/fullerene phase followed by spatial separation of electrons and holes at the interface of this mixed phase with crystalline PCBM domains. This model has significant implications for the design of alternative acceptor materials to PCBM for organic solar cells.
