The magnetic frustration in a quasi-one-dimensional organic polymer is studied. The results show that if the frustrating hopping is turned on, three ground-state phases are found: a ferrimagnetic phase, two singlet phases. Two nearly degenerate states with one sublattice forming spin singlet are also discussed. The difference of phase diagrams between the present Hubbard model and the Heisenberg model results from the appearance of charge order in the Hubbard model. Due to the frustration, the particle-hole symmetry in the single-particle spectra is destroyed. The relation between the spectral functions and the spin configurations are investigated for different phases.
