1960’s: Organic Equivalents.

Inorganic semiconductors have their organic molecular counterparts. Molecules can be designed so as to be electron-rich donors (D) or electron-poor acceptors (A).

Joining micron-thick films of D and A yields an organic rectifier (unidirectional current) that is equivalent to an inorganic pn rectifier.

Organic charge-transfer crystals and conducting polymers yielded organic equivalents of a variety of inorganic electronic systems: semiconductors, metals, superconductors, batteries, etc.

BUT: they weren’t as good as the inorganic standards.

more expensive

less efficient
