We report on the effect of external pressure on the superconducting transition temperature (Tc) of as-grown and thermally treated single crystals of superconducting iron chalcogenide Rb0.85Fe1.9Se2. The superconducting transition temperature of 27.1 K at ambient pressure for the as-grown sample was found to increase up to 33.2 K for the sample annealed for 3 h at 215 °C in vacuum. An increase of Tc up to 28.2 K was observed for the as-grown sample at a pressure of 0.83 GPa. For all the studied crystals, annealed in the temperature range between 215 °C and 290 °C, the external pressure seems to decrease the superconducting transition temperature and a negative pressure coefficient of Tc was observed.
