The study of polymeric materials with magnetic properties has been enhanced in recent years since the discovery that such material, even without being doped with magnetic ions, may exhibit magnetic behavior even at room temperature. However, little has been investigated the magnetic and transport properties in these materials. In this sense, from the experience gained in our group that we are proposing this theme postdoctoral project aiming to develop films of polyaniline (PANI) and poly (3-hexiltiltiofeno). The first due to the high conductivity when doped, low cost and good stability and by having a second degnerescência dimerized low state causing the polarons and bipolarons confined in the network charge carriers become important in electronic configuration.
