    MEM(TCNQ)2 undergoes a first order semiconductor to metal transition at 340.8 K. We have measured the thermoelectric power (TEP) of MEM(TCNQ)2 in the temperature range above 335 K. Above the transition the TEP is −65 μV/°K, in the low temperature phase it is strongly temperature dependent and approaches zero near the transition. The indicated loss of spin entropy at the transition is discussed.
