We report that linear oligomers of furan, which is a biodegradable molecule directly obtainable from biomass, could be used as organic semiconductors and show field effect mobilities similar to those of the corresponding thiophene analogues. Efficient fluorescence and increased solubility of oligofurans and their derivatives are two other important advantages for their application in organic electronics.
