This article discusses the importance of the choice of synthetic methodology in the purity, and therefore performance, of both small-molecule and polymeric organic semiconductors. We discuss common methodologies used in the preparation of organic semiconductors, paying particular attention to the impurities and by-products that can arise during these synthetic approaches and how they can have an impact on semiconductor performance.
