A series of six phenyl-flanked benzodipyrrolidone-based copolymers are designed and synthesised: three exhibit backbone in-plane curvature or torsional twisting, while the other three remain planar and linear. While the former may appear less crystalline by X-ray diffraction, they afford a smoother thin-film surface topology and increased electron mobility in top-gate, bottom-contact organic field-effect transistors.
