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: 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.

    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: Using angle-dispersive x-ray powder diffraction and image plate detector, the equations of state of H2O and D2O ice VII, corrected for deviatoric strain, were determined up to 106 GPa, and 60 GPa, respectively. Our data were analyzed on the basis of the universal equation of state of Vinet et al. This treatment indicates the occurrence of two second- or higher-order phase transitions at about 15 and 66 GPa, in agreement with the pressure ranges where the nature of the proton disorder is expected to change.
