Conjugated semiconducting polymers allow the possibility to fabricate electronic device by a variety of low cost printing techniques. Polymeric semiconductors offer an attractive combination in terms of appropriate solution rheology for printing processes, mechanical flexibility for rollable processing and applications, but their electrical performance requires further improvement in order to enable the next generation of plastic electronics devices, such as logic circuits and solar cells. The design and optimization of semiconducting polymers for these applications relies on the ability to design the self-assembly of the material in the thin film phase, as well as control the electronic energy levels. In this presentation, I will introduce the main application areas of plastic electronics as well as discussing our recent work looking at different strategies to design high performance materials for these devices. In addition I will also discuss approaches to reproducibly synthesise these polymers with good control via microdroplet reactors.
