A study has been made of the structure of conducting Langmuir-Blodgett films of organic complexes of tetracyanoquinodimethane + N-octadecylpyridine in the original state and after doping with iodine. The films ranged in thickness from 300-600 A. The doping changes the structure of the films only insignificantly, while the electrical conductivity falls from 10~3 S/cm in the original films to 2 X 10~8 S/cm.
