Different forms of an electrically conductive polymer, an organic semiconductor, namely, polyaniline, have been synthesized and characterized. The magnetization curves of the obtained forms have been analyzed. It has been found that, in the oxidized form, the material exhibits a magnetic hysteresis at room temperature. For polyaniline without a special doping with magnetic additives, this result has been obtained for the first time. The possibility of controlling the magnetic properties of the material by means of chemical treatment at the post-polymerization stage has been demonstrated.
