We report the fabrication of high quality thin films for semiconducting organic donor-acceptor charge-transfer (CT) compounds, (diCBTBT)(FTCNQ) (diCBTBT = 2,7-dioctyl[1]benzothieno[3,2-b][1]benzothiophene and FTCNQ [ = 0,2,4] = fluorinated derivatives of 7,7,8,8,-tetracyanoquinodimethane), which have a high degree of layered crystallinity. Single-phase and uniaxially oriented polycrystalline thin films of the compounds were obtained by co-evaporation of the component donor and acceptor molecules. Organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) fabricated with the compound films exhibited -type field-effect characteristics, showing a mobility of 6.9 × 10−2 cm2/V s, an on/off ratio of 106, a sub-threshold swing of 0.8 V/dec, and an excellent stability in air. We discuss the suitability of strong intermolecular donor–acceptor interaction and the narrow CT gap nature in compounds for stable -type OTFT operation.
