Structure-property behaviour of poly(tetramethylene oxide) (PTMO)-bipyridinium ionene elastomers have been investigated. These systems display high tensile properties and high elongation. Their general properties can be explained as being due to the high degree of microphase separation of ionic domains promoted by strong coulombic interactions in conjunction with strain induced crystallization of the PTMO soft segments. The microphase separation was established by use of small angle X-ray scattering as well as limited use of transmission electron microscopy. Some indication of the thermal stability characteristics of these materials is also presented
