    Temperature-dependent thermoelectric-power (S) studies of (N-methylphenazinium)x(phenazine)1-x(tetracyanoquinodimethanide) [(NMP)x(phen)1-x(TCNQ)] show that for x=0.5, S(T) is indentical to that of (quinolinium)(TCNQ)2. S(T) for 0.5<x<1.0 is intermediate between that of (NMP)(TCNQ) and (quinolinium)(TCNQ)2. Our results show strong Coulomb correlations are important in these salts and that their transport properties are determined by semiconducting gaps with disorder having only secondary importance for T>70 K.
