A study was conducted to demonstrate solution-processable ambipolar organic field-effect transistors based on a discotic dye. Such single component devices allow the study of the influence of supramolecular ordering on FET charge transport properties. These transistors exhibited ambipolarity even without any structural order. The absence of p-type behavior could not be explained by the increase of hole injection barrier or by interface trapping. It was rather observed that the change in morphology most probably lead to such a phenomenon. These findings further suggest that besides charge injection barriers and interface trapping, structural composition, that is, microscopic domain boundaries together with local defects in one-dimensional columnar systems, also trigger the loss of ambipolarity owing to lowering of the minority charge carrier mobility.
