The electrochemical dopant-exchange (DE) process of p-toluenesulfonate-doped polypyrrole (PPy/TsO-) was studied in LiClO4 and LiBF4 aqueous solutions under high magnetic fields of up to 12 T. The application of magnetic fields to the redox process of the PPy/TsO- film or to the electropolymerization process shifts the undoping potential of the TsO- ion to a positive or negative side, respectively. As a result, the magnetic fields allow control of the plastic behavior in the DE process of the PPy/TsO- film. These results are discussed in connection with the effect of the diamagnetic orientation.
