Abstract

We report here π-conjugated small molecules and polymers based on the new π-acceptor building block, bithiophenesulfonamide (BTSA). Molecular orbital computations and optical, electrochemical, and crystal structure analyses illuminate the architecture and electronic structure of the BTSA unit versus other acceptor building blocks. Field-effect transistors and photovoltaic cells demonstrate that BTSA is a promising unit for the construction of π-conjugated semiconducting materials.
