A new anthracene-based X-shaped conjugated molecule, HBTATHT, was synthesized. Thin film transistors based on unannealed HBTATHT showed a carrier mobility of 0.15 cm 2 V -1 s -1 (I on/off = 7.9 × 10 6). Further, a solution processed solar cell made of HBTATHT exhibited promising power conversion efficiencies of 4.84% and 4.70% with PC 61BM (1:0.8 wt ratio) and PC 71BM (1:0.6 wt ratio), respectively.
