- A fact-finding study on thiophenyl diketopyrrolopyrrole (TDPP)-containing polymers for electronically convertible transport characteristics in organic field effect transistors (OFETs) is presented. In the subject of this consideration, a TDPP-based polymer with bis-benzothiadiazole (BisBT) units that serve as powerful electron-deficient building blocks, namely PDTDPP-BisBT, is prepared in order to achieve an n-channel transistor. The resulting polymer shows n-channel dominant ambipolar OFET characteristics and its electron mobility (1.3 x 10(-3) cm(2) V(-1) s(-1)) is found to be one order of magnitude higher than the hole mobility. Besides, the PDTDPP-BisBT OFET performance is independent of film-deposition conditions due to its completely amorphous microstructure, supported by the atomic force microscopy (AFM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. Herein, we report an intriguing discovery in sync with our previous studies that TDPP-based polymers can function as a p-type, n-type, or ambipolar organic semiconductor in accordance with the degree of electron affinity of the comonomers.
