Novel π-electron systems with trifluoromethylphenyl groups and/or a thiazolothiazole unit were developed as n-type semiconductors for OFETs. They showed excellent n-type performances with high electron mobilities. The trifluoromethylphenyl group was found to be very effective in inducing n-type behavior. The thiazolothiazole unit was favorable for forming stacking structures leading to efficient intermolecular π−π interactions.
