      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).
