Paper Abstract

Face-to-face interactions of aromatic molecules in the crystalline state may prove to be the most relevant for materials destined to be used in thin-film transistor or photovoltaic applications. We have designed functionalized pentacene derivatives that maximize these interactions in the solid state. We present here a description of a number of pi-stacked crystalline motifs that we can access, along with a discussion of the dependence of resistivity and band gap on the nature and amount of pi-overlap in the crystal.
