The high-pressure behaviour of cesium sulphide Cs2S has been studied up to 19 GPa at room temperature using angle-dispersive x-ray powder diffraction in a diamond-anvil cell. X-ray results show that the initial anticotunnite-type structure (S.G. Pnma) seems to undertake a continuous transformation to a distorted Ni2In-type structure (also with S.G. Pnma), starting below 1 GPa and being almost completed at 5 GPa. The profile of the x-ray diffraction patterns did not change noticeably from this pressure to 17 GPa. The observed structural changes in Cs2S are discussed in relation to the high-pressure behaviour of the rest of alkaline sulfides and their systematic trends are pointed out. Finally, we discuss the analogies between the structures of alkaline-metal chalcogenides and those of the cationic arrays of their corresponding oxides (sulfates, selenates, and tellurates) comparing the insertion of oxygen and the application of pressure.

It is also very incompressible, but its high-pressure behaviour is not well understood because it has...
