We have studied the pressure dependence of the specific heat for PrPb 3 and La-diluted system Pro.97Lao.o3Pb 3. In PrPb3, the quadrupolar ordering temperature at Tq=0.4 K rises by δT=10 mK at P=0.66 GPa. In Pr0.97La 0.03Pb3, in which the quadrupolar ordering disappears by the La substitution, the specific heat C varies with increasing pressure. C/T below 0.3 K is nearly constant at low pressures, while C/T increases gradually with decreasing temperature at P=0.88 GPa. These results can be explained by the pressure dependence of the intersite interaction between the Γ3 moments and that of the interaction between the rΓ3 moments and the conduction electrons.
