We report direct observations of anomalous magnetic-field and temperature dependences of the Shubnikov–de Haas oscillations in the organic superconductor γ″-(BEDT-TTF)2SF5CH2CF2SO3. Unlike other BEDT-TTF based organic superconductors, a nonmetallic temperature dependence of the background magnetoresistance is clearly observed. It is speculated that the nonmetallic behavior may arise from a partial nesting of the open orbits, similar to the field-induced density wave in the quasi-one-dimensional systems or a charge localization. The analysis of the magnetoresistance oscillations are found to deviate from the conventional Lifshitz-Kosevich description at high field and low temperatures.
