General description

N,N′-Diphenyl-3,4,9,10-perylenedicarboximide (PTCDI-Ph) is an asphaltene based conducting polymer that has an archipelago model. It is a perylene diimide derivative that has a high electron affinity and shows good chemical stability. It can be used as an active layer in the development of organic electronic devices.


PTCDI-Ph is a conjugating polymer that forms an ultrathin film that can be used in the fabrication of organic field effect transistors (OFETs) for nitrogen dioxide sensor based applications.
