General description

6,13-Bis(triisopropylsilylethynyl)pentacene (TIPS-pentacene) is a conductive polymer that can form organic thin films for a variety of semiconductor applications due to its high charge carrier mobility and stability.


TIPS-pentacene forms a hybrid with (6,6)-phenylC61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) which can be used as an organic layer that can be coated onto a silicon (Si) substrate for the fabrication of a highly efficient terahertz (THz) modulator. It can be used as a piezoresisitive sensor that produces multiple strain sensors (single sensors and sensor arrays). Organic thin-film transistors can be developed by using silver electrodes as dielectric materials and TIPS-pentacene as a semiconducting layer, which can be deposited via inkjet printing.
TIPS Pentacene is a high-performance soluble organic semiconductor for printed and flexible electronics applications. Material Matters 4.3 - Organic and Molecular Electronics Examples include the fabrication of organic field effect transistors (OFETs) with the highest reported switching speeds and field-effect mobilities in its class.

We employ a combination of linear spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and transient absorption spectroscopy to characterize the interplay between electron transfer and singlet fission dynamics in polyacene-based dyes attached to nanostructured TiO2. For triisopropyl silylethynyl (TIPS)-pentacene, we find that the singlet fission...

Cancer drug delivery remains a formidable challenge due to systemic toxicity and inadequate extravascular transport of nanotherapeutics to cells distal from blood vessels. It is hypothesized that, in absence of an external driving force, the Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium could...


Metal-Organic Complexes for Doping Organic Semiconductors and Surface Doping

The conductivity of organic semiconductors can be increased, and the barriers to charge-carrier injection from other materials can be reduced, by the use of highly reducing or oxidizing species to n- or p-dope, respectively, the semiconductor.
