Tensile stress and electrical conductivity were studied on gels formed from toluene solutions of a polydiacetylene, poly[ 5,7-dodecadiyn-1,12-diol-bis(n-butoxycarbonylmethyl urethane)], abbreviated to P(4BCMU). The gels exhibited stress-strain curves concave upwards, that is, opposite to the behaviour of ordinary flexible polymer networks. This behaviour indicates that the elasticity is not due to the conformational entropy due to deformation of the stiff ribbon-like P(4BCMU) molecules. The direct current conductivity cdc, the alternating current conductivity Q,, and Youngs modulus E increased with concentration C in proportion to Co., C.89, and Cl., respectively. The similarity in the concentration dependences of bdc, g,, and E is explained with a percolation model. The oat was almost independent of frequency in the range of 0.1-100 kHz.
