Semiconducting poly(3-alkylthiophenes) with butyl, hexyl, octyl and decyl side chains have been electrically characterized using a thin film field-effect transistor structure. The mobility of the p-type charge carriers depends on the side chain length. The mobility is also affected by additional impurities and defects.
