The high pressure behaviour of TmTe and of EuO have been investigated up to pressures of 49 and GPa and 63 GPa, respectively, using the energy dispersive x-ray diffraction technique and synchrotron radiation. TmTe shows a phase transformation at 8 GPa to a possible tetragonal structure. Above 35 GPa this structure undergoes a further distortion. EuO shows a normal compressibility curve leading up to an NaCl to CsC1 type phase transition beginning at 47 GPa.
