Chemical Fig Repertation The thermal stability of the poly(2,7carbazole) derivative (PCDTBT) is investigated. UV-visible absorption spectra and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy data demonstrate that the electronic structure of PCDTBT is stable in air at annealing temperatures up to 150 C and in N 2 even after exposure to temperatures up to 350'C. Field-effect transistors fabricated with PCDTBT show stable characteristics and hole mobility up to 150 X (air) and 350 °C (N2). V 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KCaA,.
