Quantum spin liquids are prime examples of strongly entangled phases of matter with unconventional exotic excitations. Here, strong quantum fluctuations prohibit the freezing of the spin system. On the other hand, frustrated magnets, the proper platforms to search for the quantum spin liquid candidates, still show a magnetic ground state in most of the cases. Pressure is an effective tuning parameter of structural properties and electronic correlations. Nevertheless, the ability to influence the magnetic phases should not be forgotten. We review experimental progress in the field of pressure-tuned magnetic interactions in candidate systems. Elaborating on the possibility of tuned quantum phase transitions, we further show that chemical or external pressure is a suitable parameter in these exotic states of matter. View Full-Text
