Title: Zero-Kelvin compression isotherms of the elements 1 ≤ Z ≤ 92 to 100 GPa [Zero-Kelvin compression isotherms of the elements 1 ≤ Z ≤ 90 to 100 GPa (1 megabar)]

Abstract

Most of the chemical elements have now been compressed close to or above 100 GPa (1 Mbar) pressure in diamond-anvil cells and the pressure–volume room-temperature isotherms have been measured. We collect these data and use simple lattice-dynamics models to reduce the isotherms to 0 K. We have extended the published work by making new diamond-anvil-cell measurements on Cr and Rh, and by conducting density-functional calculations on the elements Po, At, Rn, Fr, Ra, and Ac. The 0 K data are tabulated for all elements 1 ≤ Z ≤ 92 and 0 ≤ P ≤ 100 GPa. These data are useful for generating wide-range equation of state models and for studying the stability of chemical compounds at high pressure (“Megabar chemistry”). As a result, the tables presented here are intended to be reference thermodynamic tables for use in high-pressure research. Further experimental and theoretical work will be needed to extend the tables to higher pressure and to improve accuracy.
