We report the straightforward synthetic method and characterization of bis[1]benzothieno[2,3-d:2′,3′-d′]anthra[1,2-b:5,6-b′]dithiophene (BBTADT) having nine aromatic rings fused without solubilizing groups. The highest mobility of fabricated OFETs utilizing BBTADT exhibited 2.7 × 10-2 cm2 V-1 s-1 in polycrystalline films formed by vapor deposition, depending on the annealing temperatures of a substrate.
