Publication History

Published Online:

An in situ X-ray powder diffraction study has shown the cubic modification of (NH4)2SiF6 (cryptohalite, space group Fm¯3m) at 0.2–0.3 GPa to transform irreversibly into the trigonal bararite, space group P¯3m1. The anisotropy of lattice strain in the high-pressure phase of (NH4)2SiF6 was measured up to 6 GPa and compared with that in the trigonal Na2SiF6. The pressure-induced changes in the packing of (SiF6)2– anions were analyzed, the changes in the IR-spectra of (SiF6)2– ions induced by increasing pressure and on decompression were measured and compared for trigonal (NH4)2SiF6 and Na2SiF6.
