A magnetic field has been utilized for producing highly oriented films of a substituted hexabenzocoronene (HBC). Optical microscopy studies revealed large area HBC monodomains that covered the entire film, while wide-angle X-ray measurements showed that the HBC molecules are aligned with their planes along the applied field. On the basis of this method, solution-processed field-effect transistors (FET) have been constructed with charge carrier mobilities of up to 10-3 cm2/V·s, which are significantly enhanced with respect to the unaligned material. Exceptionally high mobility anisotropies of 25-75 for current flow parallel and perpendicular to the alignment direction have been measured as a function of the channel length. Atomic force microscopy performed on the FET structures reveals fibril superstructures that are oriented perpendicularly to the magnetic field direction, consisting of molecular columns with a slippage angle of 40° between the molecules. For channel lengths larger than 2.5 µm, the fibrils are smaller than the electrode spacing, which adversely affects the device performance.
