Abstract

Conjugated polymers based on pyromellitic diimides, the most compact aromatic tetracarboxylic diimides have been synthesized. Relatively low-lying LUMO energy levels and strong intermolecular interactions, together with solution processibility might enable them to become a promising new class of polymers for n-channel semiconducting materials.
