    We have measured the electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power of quinolinium (TCNQ)2 in the pressure range from atmospheric to 20 kilobars at room temperature and for 15 kilobars from 300 K to 30 K. The room temperature conductivity is enhanced by a factor of seven at 20 kilobars in a manner similar to TTF-TCNQ, whereas the thermopower is only slightly reduced (∼ 30%). At 15 kilobars the low temperature behavior remains dominated by disorder and Coulomb correlations.
