ABSTRACT: A novel approach that uses radio-frequency microcoils in the high-pressure region of anvil cells with Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
(NMR) experiments is described. High-sensitivity Al NMR data at 70 kbar for Al metal are presented for the first time. An
expected decrease in the Al Knight shift at 70 kbar is observed, as well as an unexpected change in the local charge symmetry
at the Al nucleus. The latter is not predicted by chemical structure analysis under high pressure.
