The Mott transition and the underlying universality class have been intensively studied in the past. The proposal of a hitherto unknown unconventional universality class for the quasi 2D organic charge-transfer salt κ-(BEDT-TTF)2Cu[N(CN)2]Cl (κ-Cl) [1], based on resistivity measurements, has attracted particular interest. In this compound, the Mott transition can be accessed by chemical pressure or the application of very small hydrostatic pressures of 300 bar. We will present measurements of the thermal expansion of κ-Cl under 4He-gas pressure [2], an unique technique, which provides a very sensitive tool to investigate critical phenomena [3,4], including effects of coupling of electrons to the crystal lattice [5]. A comparison of our results with theoretical predictions of a scaling theory [4] shows that the critical properties are incompatible with the proposed unconventional universality class.
