Structural and electronic properties of a new BEDT-TTF based radical cation salt, α-(BEDT-TTF)2CsCd(SCN)4, are presented. In the measurements of the electrical resistivity and the magnetic susceptibility, this new α-type salt shows metallic behavior down to low temperature. Measurements of the resistivity under in-plane c-axial strain reveal a newly observed insulating phase, suggesting that α-(BEDT-TTF)2CsCd(SCN)4 is placed near an insulating phase which might have close relationships with a superconducting phase realized in α-type salts.
