A positive magnetoresistance (MR) is observed in the composites of magnetic nanoparticles and polymer at low temperatures. The MR decreases gradually as temperature increases and becomes negative passing through a crossover temperature regime. The MR attains minimum at 40 K and increases above this temperature. The transport and magnetotransport properties at low temperatures follow Efros–Shklovskii variable range hopping. The negative magnetoresistance has been explained by the quantum interference effect in strongly localized regime.
