Low-voltage p-channel organic thin-film transistors based on [n]phenacene (n = 5, 6 or 7) were fabricated on glass and on flexible poly(ethylene 2,6-naphthalate) (PEN) substrates. For the first time, these phenacenes were combined with two ultrathin gate dielectrics based on aluminium oxide and a monolayer of octadecyl-phosphonic acid in three different transistor structures. Regardless of the substrate and the transistor structure, the field-effect mobility is found to increase with increasing length of the conjugated [n]phenacene core, leading to the best performance for phenacene. The largest average field-effect mobility we have obtained is 0.27 cm2/V·s for transistors on glass and 0.092 cm2/V·s for transistors on flexible PEN.
