The effects of thiophene numbers on the thermal, optical, electronic and charge transport properties of the polymers have been investigated. These solution processable polymers exhibit p-channel field-effect charge transport characteristics, unlike other organic NDI-based polymeric analogues. All the results indicated that they have potential applications in high-performance organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
