High-pressure X-ray diffraction studies were performed on ThOS up to 43.3 GPa and on UOSe up to 47.5 GPa, at room temperature, using a diamond anvil cell and synchrotron radiation. The tetragonal structure (P4/nmm) of these compounds was retained over the whole pressure range. The bulk modulus B(0) and its pressure derivative B(0)(') were determined for each compound.
