The authors briefly summarized the recent progress of benzo[b]thiophene derivatives used for organic field-effect transistors(OFET), in which two families:ladder-type and star-shape compounds were presented. The synthetic approaches and the properties of polycyclic hydrocarbons for application in OFET were introduced. Benzo[b]thiophene derivatives will become promising candidates as the active materials with high performance in the application of organic electronics.

Key words: benzo[b]thiophene, Organic Field-Effect Transistors, Synthesis
