The search for κ-phases of conducting and superconducting organic cation radical salts is difficult because it is not yet known which characteristics of the donor molecule are required for this structure to be generated. The figure shown the hydroxy-methyl-functionalized non-centroxymmetrical donor EDT-TTF(CH2OH), which has been purposely associated with the discrete tetrahedral perchlorate and perrhenate anions to form two new examples of a κ-phase.
