Polymetatoluidine (PMT) and Polyaniline (PANI) prepared by McDiarmid method, after doping with different dopants (salts of transition metals like copper, Brown-red complex of copper with 2,9-dimethylphenanthroline [Cu (DMPhen)2] ClO4.) become conductor, which are otherwise insulators. The brown-red complex was dissolved in 1:1 ratio of water and Tetra Hydro Furan (THF). PMT and PANI were separately dissolved in THF and doped with the complex in different ratio of 2%, 4% and 6%. Structural characterization of PMT and PANI prepared after doping of with different dopants have been studied at different concentration of dopant. FTIR, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-ray Diffraction were used for structural characterization of the prepared doped PMT and PANI. These types of measurements of doped polymetatoluidine and polyaniline systems will be helpful for the development of conducting polymeric materials. DC conductivity also proves the formation of conducting materials after doping.
