|Abstract:||In this work we report the effects of hydrostatic pressure and magnetic field on the electronic transport properties of the antiferromagnetic compound Eu(3)Ir(4)Sni(3) (T-N similar to 10 K). Single crystals of Eu3Ir4Sn13 were synthesized using the Sn self-flux technique. DC electrical resistivity measurements as a function of temperature were performed by means of the four-probe technique. The high-temperature anomaly at T* similar to 57 K attributed to a structural distortion of the Sn1Sn2(12) cages in Eu3Ir4Sn13 is rapidly decreased to lower temperatures at a rate dT*/dP = 2 K/kbar, while the antiferromagnetic transition due to the Eu2+ ions is only weakly affected. Our data do not indicate any magnetoelastic effect associated with the structural instability at T*. Furthermore, the suppression of the lattice distortion by application of external pressure is not accompanied by the emergence of superconductivity, possibly due to strong magnetic correlations between the Eu2+ localized magnetic moments|
