Measurements of the thermal conductivity lambda and the specific heat capacity per unit volume rhocv of polycrystalline C70 were carried out in the temperature range 100 - 450 K under pressures up to 1 GPa. Anomalies have been observed in lambda and rhocv near 300 K on cooling (increasing pressure) indicating a phase transition from a rotationally disordered phase into an ordered phase. The phase boundary for this transition was found to have a slope dT/dp = 70 K/GPa. The temperature dependence of lambda indicates a substantial amount of structural defects in the sample and strong hysteresis effects. We propose a phase diagram describing the probable evolution of orientational structure in T-p space.
