The conductivity of the mixed Langmuir–Blodgett films of tridecylmethylammonium‐ Au(dmit)2 and icosanoic acid after electrochemical oxidation in LiClO4 aqueous solution was measured under pressure up to 14 kbar. The room‐temperature conductivity (σRT=12 S/cm) increased with an increase in pressure reaching 2.85 times larger value at 14 kbar compared to that under ambient pressure. The temperature at which the film exhibits its maximum conductivity was shifted to lower temperature upon applying pressure without pronounced saturation.
