We present the results of spectral studies of Et 4N[ Au(dmit) 2TCNQ] salt containing alternating stacks of Au(dmit) 2 and TCNQ molecules. The polarized transmission spectra of single crystals are measured in the IR region (650 to 6500 cm -1) as a function of temperature (90 to 300 K). Moreover, the powder absorption spectra in the frequency range (400 to 40000 cm -1) are reported. From spectral evidence results that transferred electrons are localized on Au(dmit) 2 molecules in the mixed stacks. The intrastack charge transfer between Au(dmit) 2 and TCNQ molecules ( $\sim 8000~{\rm cm}^{-1}$) and the interstack charge transfer transition between Au(dmit) 2 molecules ( $\sim 5500~{\rm cm}^{-1}$) are found. Interactions of electrons with intramolecular vibrations of TCNQ (a ${\rm _g}$ modes) and Au(dmit) 2 (C = C and C = S stretching) are suggested and discussed.
