      Three new quinoxalinoTTF derivatives with methyl, trifluoromethyl   and fluoro groups were synthesized and characterized by UV–vis   absorption spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray   single crystal analysis, X-ray diffraction, and field-effect   transistor (FET) characteristics. All of them have π-stacking   structures in the single crystals. The quinoxalinoTTF derivative   with trifluoromethyl groups exhibited an n-type FET, which is a   rare example of n-channel FETs based on TTF derivatives. The   highest electron mobility is 0.01 cm2 V−1  s. The FET polarity was converted to p-channel from n-channel by   replacing the trifluoromethyl groups with methyl groups. The hole   mobility is as high as 0.2 cm2 V−1 s. In   contrast, the fluoro substituted derivative did not show FET   properties due to the poorly ordered molecular arrangement.
