The charge-transport phenomena of organic conjugated materials have been intensively investigated because of the potential applications of these materials in electronics and optoelectronics. Among these applications, organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) fabricated from either thin films or well-defined single crystals as charge-transporting layers are the most promising electronic devices. In this work, the effect of molecular packing on the performance of OFETs is investigated through the fabrication and characterization of devices based on zinc(II) porphyrins TPZ and TBPZ. The field-effect mobility of the transistors is found to increase with decreasing intermolecular distance, attributable to greater overlap of π orbitals among close-packed molecules and thereby enhance the charge transport
