We have investigated the temperature dependence of the Hall coefficient and the resistivity of an organic Mott insulator, -(BEDT-TTF)2ICl2 under ambient and hydrostatic pressures up to 2 GPa. The charge gap, , the effective mass, m*, and the scattering lifetime of carriers on Mott Hubbard bands were evaluated by analyzing these transport properties. We found that m* and are written approximately as in the low-pressure region and obtained the value of the effective on-site Coulomb energy, Ueff, of ~ 445meV. Moreover, we reveal that the effective scattering lifetime is proportional to the average distance between carriers in the two-dimensional plane, which suggests the existence of a scattering process attributable to carrier-carrier umklapp scattering in the Mott insulating state.
