The stability of C2-Al64Pd30.4Fe5.6, an approximant phase to the icosahdral Al–Fe–Pd quasicrystal, has been investigated by high-pressure X-ray diffraction using a diamond-anvil cell and synchrotron radiation up to 24.30(1) GPa. The material is structurally stable within the framework of the experiment. The unit cell volume as a function of pressure follows a second-order Birch-Murnaghan equation of state with K0 = 169.5(2.5) GPa. This value is comparable to that of other quasicrystals and approximant phases containing Al and heavy transition metals.

Keywords: High pressure; Diamond-anvil cell; Bulk modulus; Approximant phase; Complex metallic alloy
