Description

General description

Rubrene is a tetraphenyl derivative of tetracene that is used as an organic semiconductor. It is used as a source material in the fabrication of rubrene single crystal based transistors with carrier mobility over 10 cm2V−1s−1.

Application

Rubrene based thin films are used as semiconducting layers along with poly(vinylidene fluoride-terefluoroethylene) (PVDF-TeFE) as insulating layers for the fabrication of ferro-electric gate field effect transistors (FETs). It may also be used as high mobility transporting material in the development of single crystal FETs.

Reagent for chemiluminescence research and for transition metal complex ligation.

Packaging

100, 500 mg in glass insert
