The forced and exchange strictions and pressure effect on the Curie temperature of Pt1-xAuxMnSb were studied. The forced striction was almost zero and exchange striction negative. The pressure derivative of Tc was 2.3 K/kbar for x=0.4 and 0.6. The results are discussed on the basis of an empirical interaction curve.
