Abstract:

Different doped samples of conducting polypyrrole (PPy) are prepared electrochemically at different current densities. The electrical transport of conducting polypyrrole is investigated in a wide range of temperature starting from 4.2 K to 300 K. It is observed that, for samples prepared at high current densities, the electrical conduction is dominated mainly by the mechanism based on variable range hopping in a wide temperature range. On the other hand, the magnetoresistance of polypyrrole is investigated in the temperature range from 1.2 K to 4.2 K and magnetic field from H=0 T to H= 10.3 T. It is observed that, PPy sample is characterized by large positive magnetoresistance. This obtained large positive magnetoresistance in the insulating regime is typically expected for VRH conduction.
