The synthesis, structure, and magnetic properties of a new composite material obtained by the codeposition of polypyrrole and iron, in the galvanostatic mode, using square wave potentials are reported. The effect of electrodeposition conditions (voltage and concentration of the electrolytes) on the magnetic properties of the nanocomposite is analyzed.
