dc.description.abstractOrganic semiconductors are solution-processable, lightweight and flexible and are increasingly being used as the active layer in a wide range of new technologies. The versatility of synthetic organic chemistry enables the materials to be tuned such that they can be incorporated into biological sensors, wearable electronics, photovoltaics and flexible displays. These devices can be improved by improving their material components, not only by developing the synthetic chemistry but also by improving the analytical and computational techniques that enable us to understand the factors that govern material properties. Judicious molecular design provides control of the semiconductor frontier molecular orbital energy distribution and guides the hierarchical assembly of organic semiconductors into functional films where we can manipulate the properties and motion of charges and excited states. This Review describes how molecular design plays an integral role in developing organic semiconductors for electronic devices in present and emerging technologies.
