Structural, transport, and magnetic properties of new organic conductors composed of (BEDT-TTF)
, where BEDT-TTF is bis(ethylenedithio)tetrathiafulvalene, have been investigated. Two
-type polymorphs, monoclinic and orthorhombic phases are obtained by the electrocrystallization. Both phases show a semiconductor-insulator phase transition at 276 K and 300 K for the monoclinic and orthorhombic phases, respectively; the ground state of both salts is a nonmagnetic insulating state. The low-temperature X-ray diffraction measurements show two-fold superlattice reflections in the intercolumnar direction. The low-temperature crystal structures show a clear charge ordered state, which is demonstrated by the molecular shape and intramolecular bond lengths. The observed checkerboard charge ordered state is in agreement with the charge ordering in a dimer Mott insulator. If we distinguish between the monoclinic and orthorhombic phases, the transition temperature of the
P, As, Sb, and Ta) increases continuously with increasing the anion volume.
