Abstract in another language

The influence of the arrangement of donor and acceptor units in a conjugated copolymer chain on the absorption and field effect mobilities was studied. We synthesized a target random copolymer and compared it with two structurally relevant alternating copolymers, all consisting of 2,1,3-Benzothiadiazole (BT) as acceptor and 3-Hexylthiophene (Th) as donor units. Especially, bifunctional AB-type monomers were developed to obtain the desired randomly linked copolymer r-BT-2Th. We chose AA/BB-type monomers as well to obtain relevant alternating copolymers a-BT-2Th and a-BT-1Th. The systematic structural variation enables us to compare the copolymers in a precise manner. In dilute solutions r-BT-2Th and a-BT-2Th resemble closely in absorption spectra and have similar oxidation potentials regardless of random or alternating arrangement of donor and acceptor. In thin films, a-BT-2Th shows the lowest optical gap and depicts the highest field effect hole mobility of 1.5 × 10−3 cm2 V−1 s−1.
