We present our latest results on the design and fabrication of very high capacitance dielectric materials for organic field-effect transistors. We will show that utilization of appropriate self-assembling siloxane building blocks and polymer matrices allows solution-processed, pinhole-free organic dielectrics. Electrical (MIS, TFT) data demonstrate that these insulators can be efficiently integrated into large TFT structures. These devices function for both p- and n-channel semiconductors, the molecular components of which exhibit greatly different core structures and substituent functionalities. Substantial TFT response is achieved al: very low operational biases (< IV), without serious leakage currents (< 10 A/cm at IV).
