We present high pressure–high temperature diffraction data in the 0–10 GPa and 300–1000 K range of all three main iron phases. The refinements of the diffraction patterns give molar volumes to high precision and show that the α-γ-[variant_greek_epsilon] triple point is located at 8.2±0.1 GPa and 678 K. These values are significantly lower than currently admitted (10.4 GPa/740 K), but are consistent with reported in situ x-ray diffraction data obtained in multianvil presses. These measurements have been made possible by the use of a high P/T cell which uses metallic toroidal gaskets and which suffers from less absorption, gives clean diffraction patterns, and shows better pressure performance than other setups.

    The aqueous solutions of sodium cumene sulphonate (NaCS) and its mixtures with each of cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) are characterized by small angle neutron scattering (SANS). NaCS when added to CTAB solution leads to the formation of long rod-shaped...
