Abstract

The investigation of the solid-state order of pentacene reveals "herringbone" packing with a combination of edge-to-face and face-to-face molecular interactions. This packing arrangement yields limited π-orbital overlap and may limit the field-effect mobility possible in pentacene. This paper reports on organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) fabricated with pentacene functionalized to improve π-orbital overlap.
