We show that newly found BF[sub 3]-doped polyaniline, although highly conducting, remains amorphous. Magnetic studies reveal many unusual properties, while suggesting that the intrinsic conductivity of this system is significantly larger than all other known forms of conducting polyaniline, establishing it as an interesting class of highly conducting amorphous polymer.
