Temperature-dependent electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power of some recently synthesized fused heterocyclic compounds (nonsymmetrical bisindolizines), are studied. Thin-film samples (d = 0.10-0.20 μm) deposited from dichloromethane solutions onto glass substrates were used. Organic films with reproducible electronic transport properties can be obtained if, after deposition, they are submitted to a heat treatment within temperature range 300-600 K. The studied compounds show typical p-type semiconductor behavior. The activation energy of the electrical conduction ranges between 0.90 and 1.17 eV, while the ratio of charge carrier mobilities was found in the range 0.94-0.97. Some correlations between semiconducting parameters and molecular structure of the organic compounds have been discussed. In the higher temperature range (373-601 K), the electronic transport in examined compounds can be interpreted in terms of the band gap representation model, while in the lower temperature range, the Mott's variable-range hopping conduction model was found to be appropriate. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
