ABSTRACT This letter is concerned with the analysis of high pressure experimental data. It is demonstrated that ln H plots based on the Vinet et al. (1988) universal equation of state are a simple sensitive means for identifying anomalous P-V data in high pressure experiments and for detecting structural and phase transitions in solids subjected to high pressure.

    ABSTRACT: Various equations of state reported in the literature are used to investigate the variation of the bulk modulus for NaCl crystals under the effect of pressure up to 300 × 108 Pa. The results are compared with the corresponding values obtained in the present study using interionic potentials as well as with the available experimental data. Values of bulk modulus as a function of pressure are also calculated by taking into account the variation of the Anderson parameter with pressure. The results thus obtained are found to present best agreement with those estimated from the universal equation of state.

    ABSTRACT: Recent theoretical and experimental results on the structure and dynamics of ice in wide regions of pressure and temperature are compared with earlier models and predictions to illustrate the evasive nature of ice X, which was originally introduced as completely ordered form of ice with short single centred hydrogen bonds isostructural Cu2O. Due to the lack of experimental information on the proton ordering in the pressure and temperature region for the possible occurrence of ice X, effects of thermal and quantum delocalization are discussed with respect to the shape of the phase diagram and other structural models consistent with present optical and X-ray data for this region. Theoretical evidences for an additional orthorhombic modification (ice XI) at higher pressures are confronted with various reasons supporting a delocalization of the protons in the form of a heavy fermion system with very unique physical properties characterizing this fictitious new phase of ice XII.

    ABSTRACT: The pressure-volume data of ice up to 128 GPa at room temperature of Hemley et al. have been analyzed on the basis of the universal equation of state by Vinet et al. Appreciable deviations from linearity in the ln H(X) versus 1-X plot have been found, which suggests the occurence of two phase transitions at about 40 and 70 GPa. The lower one corresponds to the hydrogen-bond symmetrization transition observed in spectroscopic measurements and the higher one is a new transition not observed previously which may suggest the presence of the proton-disordered ice X' predicted by Hirsch and Holzapfel.
