Comprehensive measurements of the pressure- and temperature-dependent dc-transport are combined with dielectric spectroscopy and structural considerations in order to elucidate the charge and anion orderings in the quasi-one-dimensional charge-transfer salts (TMTTF)
with non-centrosymmetric anions X
. Upon applying hydrostatic pressure, the charge-order transition is suppressed in all three compounds, whereas the influence on the anion order clearly depends on the particular compound. A review of the structural properties paves the way for understanding the effect of the anions in their methyl cavities on the ordering. By determining the complex dielectric constant
in different directions we obtain valuable information on the contribution of the anions to the dielectric properties. For (TMTTF)
exhibits an activated behavior of the relaxation time with activation energies similar to the gap measured in transport, indicating that the relaxation dynamics are determined by free charge carriers.
