Magnetotransport has been studied on the quasi two-dimensional monophosphate tungsten bronzes (PO 2) 4(WO 3) 2m for m=4 and 6, between 0.3 and 300 K in fields up to 18 T. These compounds show several charge density wave transitions. Large magnetoresistance is found in the charge-density-wave state for magnetic fields applied perpendicular to the layers. At low temperatures, Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations are attributed to the existence of small carrier pockets left by the charge density wave gap opening. The size of these pockets is of the order of a few % of the two-dimensional high temperature Brillouin zone and smaller in the case m=6 than in m=4. This is due to a more pronounced low-dimensional character and therefore to a better Fermi surface nesting in the compound m=6 than in m=4.
