Electrical and magnetic transport properties have been measured on single crystals of the molybdenum blue bronze alloy system (Rb1-xCsx)0.3MoO3 prepared by the temperature gradient flux technique. Although the properties of the blue bronze are retained, cesium substitution decreases both ρ{variant} (298 K) and the transition temperature observed at 180 K for Rb0.3MoO3. Solid-state studies indicate that the upper limit of Cs doping is approximately 45%. Attempts are made to correlate the effects of cesium substitution with the observed changes in the transport properties.
