The high-spin ↔ low-spin transition in (2Me-5Et-PyH)[Fe(Th-5Cl-Sa)_2] was studied by EPR under hydrostatic pressure in the temperature range of 80-310 K. Two modifications of the low-spin complexes: low-pressure (LS-1) and high-pressure (LS-2) ones were revealed. The low-spin complexes are associated in domains. Under atmospheric pressure LS-1 appears or disappears at 220 K. The hydrostatic pressure shifts the transition to high temperatures. Above 410 MPa the abrupt changes of the g-factor and width Δ B of the EPR line are observed. The pressure-induced transition LS-1 ↔ LS-2 is almost independent of T up to 275 K where under pressure 420 MPa a triple point is observed. When the pressure has been decreased the reverse transition from LS-2 to LS-1 or to high spin phase (at T>260 K) occurs with a large hysteresis about 95 MPa.
