Abstract

Recent work has shown that crystals of tetrathiofulvalene-tetracyanoguinodimethan (TTF-TCNQ) and of dimethyl-TTF-TCNQ (ATTF-TCNQ) show some properties of superconductors at tem-peratures on the order of 60°K. However, these materials are unable to sustain their superconducting properties due to crystal distortion.
