The synthesis, characterization and properties of the first n-type thiopene-based conductor is reported. It can be used in thin film transistors (TFT) of n-type which are crucial in fabrication of complementary circuits. The molecular, thermal and semiconducting properties are studied using various spectroscopic, microscopic and X ray techniques. The results reveal remarkable congruencies both wihin and between n-type and p-type materials.
