We report the synthesis and characterization of a new class of regioregular pentacene-containing conjugated polymers via our synthetic routes reported previously. We found that our regioregular pentacene polymers showed improved ordering than their regiorandom counterpart as well as ambipolar OFET performance. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
