Outline of the Project

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are known to have high potential as organic electronic materials. However, only a few compounds can be used for this purpose. It is necessary to develop innovative synthetic methods of new types of electronic materials. In this project, we will develop new synthetic methods of π-conjugated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons applicable to n-type semi-conductors by means of C-H and other unreactive carbon bonds cleavage. We will fabricate n-type field effect transistor devices using these synthesized compounds.
