This work describes the development of solution processable liquid crystalline semiconductors and their applications in field-effect transistors. The relationship between liquid crystal molecular structure, its corresponding phase behaviour and electrical performance is examined. Molecular design methodology is employed to control the liquid crystalline morphology. The thermal, optical and electrical behaviour of these materials is characterised and X-ray diffraction scattering technique is used to reveal details of morphology and molecular orientation.
