## Abstract

A valence bond (VB) description is introduced for organic charge-transfer (CT) salts based on mixed stacks . . . D** plus **yA** minus **yD** plus **yA** minus **y . . . of donors (D) and acceptors (A). Extrapolating exact results for finite rings shows that the magnetic gap DELTA E//m is finite for gamma less than gamma //c equals 0. 68 plus or minus 0. 01 and vanishes for gamma greater than gamma //c as expected in the paramagnetic ionic limit gamma equals 1. The small finite DELTA E//m in the ″ionic″ TMPD-TCNQ complex indicates incomplete CT, in agreement with the resonant Raman result of gamma similar 0. 7. The extension of diagrammatic VB techniques to partly-filled segregated ion-radical stacks like . . . A** minus **yA** minus **yA** minus **yA** minus **y or D** plus **yD** plus **yD** plus **yD** plus **y . . . is discussed.
