Abstract
Oligosilanes are reported here to be excellent candidates as hole transport materials, since they possess mobile sigma -conjugated electrons, like the related polysilanes. Oligosilanes, however, display the important property of self-organization (see Figure). The high hole mobilities observed by th ese authors for polycrystalline permethyldecasilane thin films are discusse d here in terms of local and global structure.
