We investigated the magnetization of the organic weak-ferromagnet p-NC.C6F4.CNSSN in the pressure P region up to 16 kbar. The transition temperature Tc at ambient pressure is 35.5 K. Tc is enhanced with increasing pressure, and reaches 64.5 K at P = 16 kbar, which is the highest Tc for a genuine organic weak-ferromagnet. On the other hand, the net moment is suppressed by the pressure, and this can be explained with the Dzyaloshinsky-Moriya model.
