Two novel platinum(II) donor-acceptor (D-A) naphthalene diimide (NDI)-based copolymers have been designed and synthesized. The effects of thiophene numbers on the thermal, optical, electronic and charge transport properties of the polymers have been investigated. These solution processable polymers exhibit p-channel field-effect charge transport characteristics, unlike other organic NDI-based polymeric analogues. All the results indicated that they have potential applications in high-performance organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
