Abstract:

Eighteen polyacene polymers were synthesized and their resistivities were found to be of the order of 10 to the 4th power to 10 to the 5th power ohms-cm. Resistivity of these polymer semiconductors was found sensitive to changes in synthesis conditions, changes in the structure of the polymers, and variations of pressure and temperature during experimentation. The forbidden energy gaps for these polymers was about 0.5 ev. Author
