The synthesis of isomerically pure syn-anthradithiophene derivatives (syn-ADTs) is described. X-ray crystallography is used to compare the solid-state arrangement of syn-ADT derivatives 2a,b to the analogous mixture of syn- and anti-ADTs. Single-crystal OFETs based on isomerically pure syn-ADTs 2a,b display device performance comparable to those based on a mixture of ADT isomers syn/anti-2a,b with mobilities as high as 1 cm2/(V s).
