Pressure-induced structural transformation in potassium stanichloride has been studied by x-ray diffraction at room temperature. The change in the diffraction pattern started at about a pressure of 15 kbar and continued upto 50 kbar. The pattern recorded at about 50 kbar could be indexed basing on an orthorhombic lattice, with lattice parametersa=7.32,b=7.02 andc=8.02 Å.
