A series of AA/BB-type supramolecular polymers (SP1–3) based on pillar[5]­arene host–guest interactions was developed and their photoelectric properties were further evaluated. The formation of SP1 was confirmed by multiple measurements via nuclear magnetic resonance and specific viscosity studies. The electroluminescence properties of SP1–3 were also investigated. As a result of the efficient energy transfer caused by the exciton trapping on narrow band gap guest G2, by applying a doping strategy, the light-emitting color of the resulting polymers could be easily turned from blue to green. Meanwhile, photoluminescent efficiencies up to 81.6% were obtained. All the supramolecular polymers prepared in this work were utilized as the emissive layers (EMLs) in light-emitting devices and a maximum luminance efficiency (LE) of nearly 5 cd A–1 was achieved.
