In organic electronics, large efforts have been undertaken to create molecules with optimal electroactive properties. Yet an organic semiconductor’s performance in an actual device is often determined by its bulk-morphology that outweighs its single molecule properties. Consequently, electronically similar materials may function very differently from each other in the same type of devices. A system in which the bulk morphology is strictly decoupled from the single molecule’s electronic properties could be used to establish clear structure-function relationships that are otherwise hard or even impossible to obtain. As explored in this presentation, such a system can be constructed from acenes, and strategies to independently mutate either their electronic or morphological properties will be discussed herein.
