Title: Pressure-induced anomalies and structural instability in compressed β-Sb 2 O 3

Here, we have discovered a new high-pressure phase of Sb 2 O 3 , and reported pressure-induced anomalies in orthorhombic β-Sb 2 O 3 (valentinite) by the combination of synchrotron in situ X-ray diffraction and first-principles theoretical calculations up to 40.5 GPa.
