The effects of high pressure, up to 1 GPa, on a Mn-based Prussian blue ferrimagnet, Mn3II[MnIII(CN)6] 2·12H2O·1.7(CH3OH) with TN=29 K, were studied. The transition temperature gradually increases with an increase in pressure and becomes ~40 K at 1 GPa. The pressure dependence of TN can be semi-quantitatively interpreted in terms of the shrinkage of the Mn-CN-Mn superexchange pathway.
