HIGH PRESSURE X-RAY DIFFRACTION STUDIES OF THS UP TO 40 GPA USING SYNCHROTRON RADIATION
High pressure X-ray diffraction studies (up to 40 GPa) were performed on ThS using synchrotron radiation and a diamond anvil cell. The measured value of 145 GPa for the bulk modulus (B-0) disagrees with a previous measurement. The high pressure behaviour indicates a phase transformation to ThS II starting at 15 - 20 GPa. The transformation is of the second order type, and the resulting structure can be described as distorted f.c.c.
