Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals (NCs) and, recently, nanoplatelets (NPLs), owing to their efficient and narrow-band luminescence, are considered as frontier materials for light-emitting diode (LED) technology. NC-LEDs typically incorporate interfacial layers as charge regulators to ensure charge balancing and high performance. In this Letter, we show the prolongation of the lifetime of multilayer solution-processed NC-LEDs by combining a self-doped conductive conjugated polyelectrolyte and exfoliated molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) flakes as an alternative to PEDOT:PSS. The ink features a neutral pH and a tunable hydrophobicity that mainly results in a remarkable stability of LEDs, using CdSe/CdZnS NPLs.
