Abstract Using helium as a pressure-transmitting medium in a diamond anvil cell enabled a high-quality sample of the antiferromagnet CePd2Si2 to be studied in a highly hydrostatic environment. With the aid of a low-temperature force-modulation device, ac calorimetric measurements were made up to 25 kbar and resistivity measurements up to 33 kbar, on both sides of PC, found between 28 and 29.5 kbar. The narrow superconducting domain found around PC indicates the connection between the magnetic instability and the formation of Cooper pairs. We assert that there is an influence of the residual resistivity both on the emergence of superconductivity, and on the corresponding transition width. Close to PC, the temperature dependence of the resistivity in the normal state qualitatively agrees with the spin-fluctuation model. While standard Fermi liquid behaviour was found to break down in the immediate vicinity of PC, it reappeared below 700 mK at 33 kbar, less than 5 kbar above.
