Triarylamine polymers can be rapidly assembled by microwave-assisted amination of aryldibromides. A series of polymers are reported with backbones containing 4,4 0 -biphenyl, 2.9-fluorene and 3,6-carbazole repeating units. These polymers have been used to fabricate organic field-effect transistors. The devices show very stable operation under ambient conditions and p-type mobilities up to 2.3 Â 10 À3 cm 2 V À1 s À1 , close to the highest mobility reported to date for this class of amorphous
