Organic semiconductors are significant as highly prospective materials of reasonable costs for use in a broad range of organic electronics, i.e., light-emitting instruments, FETs, as well as solar cells. Semiconductors built with organic materials maintain their processing ability as related to polymeric units while also retaining their optical characteristics, i.e., elevated absorption coefficients and field-effect mobility close to the value of formless silicon. The explanation of valid arrangement-feature connections becomes crucial in the engineering of useful and efficient semiconducting organic materials. This article summarizes the most recent discoveries in the grafting of semiconducting polymeric structures onto different solids for electronic tools, and also presents the effects of adaptable tails in semiconducting organics. This includes information on how size is impacted, odd even results, substitution and localization, end groups, branching, and also discusses the connections stemming from the halogenation of organic semiconductors.
