We show that the electrochemical stability window of the constituent components in light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs), e.g., the electrolyte, should be considered in order to minimize undesired side reactions. By designing and operating LECs in accordance with straightforward principles, we demonstrate sandwich cells that turn on fast at room temperature (<2 s), and which emit significant yellow-green light (>100 cd/m2) during 25 days of uninterrupted operation at low voltage (<4 V) and high power conversion efficacy ~6 lm/W. We further demonstrate that it is possible to attain balanced p- and n-type doping and a centered p-n junction in such planar LECs based on the conjugated polymer “superyellow.”
