Describes an apparatus designed to acquire x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) spectra of high-pressure liquid and supercritical fluid solutions. Application of XAFS spectroscopy; Factors cited for the paucity of studies conducted on XAFS; Advice that planned improvements of the technique should allow for routine x-ray measurements to pressures of 4 kbar.
