A heptafluorene, F(Pr)5F(MB)2, a dodecafluorene, F(MB)10F(EH)2, and poly(9,9′-dioctylfluorene), PFO, were used to prepare field-effect transistors. Monodomain and polydomain glassy-nematic films as well as glassy-amorphous films were prepared for the measurement of hole mobility. In a monodomain film, the μ∥ value is determined by the chain length in oligofluorene and the persistence length in polyfluorene. Mobility in a polydomain film lies between μ∥ and μ⊥ of a monodomain film. Amorphous films possess the lowest mobility of all presumably because of the geometric and energetic disorder. The OFET containing a monodomain glassy-nematic film of F(MB) 10F(EH)2 exhibits a field-effect mobility of 0.012 cm2/Vs with an on/off current ratio of 1.0 × 104, a substantial improvement over a monodomain glassy-nematic film of PFO.
