Low-temperature electronic phases in a new two-component organic conductor, a segregated-stack charge-transfer salt called (CHTM-TTP)2TCNQ, are investigated. The ESR g tensor analyses indicate that there exist itinerant CHTM-TTP spins and localized TCNQ spins at R.T. The temperature dependence of the physical parameters reveals that this salt undergoes two drastic, successive phase transitions at low temperatures. The effective moment of the localized TCNQ spins decreases at the 245 K transition and completely disappears at the transition around 195 K. These curious physical properties are explained by the drastic changes in the electronic states of the two different types of spins. The spin susceptibility was decomposed into the contribution of each of the two spin species by using ESR, 1H-NMR, and static susceptibility analyses. We present a microscopic investigation of the two-spin system with itinerant and localized moments.
