We review experimental data on the low-temperature behaviour of pure, and cation-doped 1T-TaS2, This suggests that the transition into the commensurate phase is accompanied by Mott-localization while below helium temperatures, conduction proceeds by variable range hopping in disorder-localized states lying in a region where the Mott-Hubbard subbands slightly overlap. Many properties of doped samples can be understood by assuming that the star-shaped atomic clusters characteristic of pure material are preferentially centred on impurities.
