      Acene derivatives provide   unique materials for organic semiconductor applications. Recent   synthetic achievements have provided several oligomers and   polymers based on acene building blocks of varied structural   motifs, including anthracene, tetracene, pentacene, as well as   naphtho- and anthradithiophene. This report highlights recent   work in this area, particularly for the higher acenes tetracene,   pentacene, and anthradithiophene. When possible, the properties   of defined-length oligomers are compared and contrasted to those   of mono- and polymeric systems.
