In the field of electronics, developing novel strategies for organic semiconductor synthesis are crucial. Derivatives of compounds called “thienoacenes” have been known for their role as organic semiconductors, but conventional methods for the synthesis of thienoacenes require the use of expensive transition metal catalysts. To overcome this limitation, scientists at Okayama University developed a novel electrochemical reaction that successfully produced thienoacene derivatives in a cost-effective manner.
