Conductive polymers (CPs) are arranged in the end-on direction on graphene surfaces using 3D tectons of ZnPc assemblies, to control carrier transport from hot to cold via external magnetic fields. Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)s doped with tosylate are synthesized using monomer seeds that are complexed through pyridine units to 3D tectons on graphene via surface-confined host-guest chemistry, to provide an end-on-oriented polymer film on graphene with a high degree of crystallinity. The film shows free-electron-like charge transport properties, with an enhanced Hall mobility, and an increased Seebeck coefficient compared to the CP on graphene that is prepared without 3D tectons. A magneto-thermoelectric (MTE) effect is reproducibly observed for the film device. Taking advantage of a large photothermal effect of the polymer film, a photon-mode MTE effect is demonstrated for the first time. Both dark and photo-MTE effects correlate well to the generated Lorentz force. These results provide a unique tool to program carrier transport in thin-film via external magnetic stimuli with a temperature gradient.
