The electrical resistance of an organic conductor (ET) 2Br $\cdot$ C 2H 4(OH) 2 has been measured under pressure. This compound exhibits a metal-insulator transition of the first order. The transition temperature was found to increase with increasing the pressure, with the resistance decrease when passing into the insulator state at pressures higher than 1.8 kbar. The phase diagram is presented.
