SCLCPs are synthesized using “click chemistry”. The resulting polymers, P1 and P2, have good solubilities and molecular‐weight distributions. Their equation image and polydispersities are in the ranges of 26.7–8.4 × 103 g · mol−1 and 1.99–1.29, respectively. DSC and POM studies reveal that both polymers exhibit liquid‐crystalline behavior. P1 and P2 are found to display blue emission. DSSCs are fabricated using P1 and P2 as matrices for electrolytes. The maximum PCE of the P1‐ and P2‐based polymer electrolytes is 4.11% (at 1 sun). This synthesis route has again proven to be a useful synthetic methodology for fabricating SCLCPs that are promising materials for device applications.
