Thermoplastic elastomers were prepared by association between crystalline amines and telechelic polymer with carboxyl groups (CTPEB) at both ends. The crystalline moieties of stearyl amine could be form a crystalline or semicrystalline structure and associated with each other, which lead to the network formation of telechelic polymer. These compound showed the thermoplastic behavior. In order to obtain samples with higher transition temperature, compared with stearyl amine, we tried several method. N-(2-aminoethyl) octadecanamide (NAODAm) used as a crystalline amine with high melting temperature for its hydroxyl bond. The complex between CTPEB and NAODAm had transition temperature with about 70°C which is about 30°C higher than that of CTPEB/stearyl amime (C18A) complex region.
