Abstract

The technique to improve the performance of acenes was investigated using molecular engineering methods. The stability and basic electronic properties of acenes were also discussed. The charge-carrier mobility in acenes was improved by decreasing intermolecular spacing between π-faces in the solid state. It was found that the dioxolane-substituted pentacene exhibits both a blue-shift in absorption and emission along with an increase in fluorescence quantum yield.
