The sharp contrast between the conductivity of complex TCNQ salts with symmetric and asymmetric bipyridine donors reveals the role played by the asymmetric molecules in well conducting organic salts. A highly anisotropic strongly correlated semiconductor is obtained when the donor molecule is symmetric, a smeared out "metal insulator" transition is found with the asymmetric donor modification.
