Abstract

Several physical properties of four quasi-one-dimensional organic conductors are compared. Assuming that the intermolecular spacing along the conducting stacks and the magnitude of the susceptibility serve as indicators of the degree of electronic overlap, the data indicate that an increase in this overlap enhances the stability of the insulating ground state of these systems. As a result, the metal-insulator transition temperature is found to scale roughly linearly with an effective Fermi energy.
