    • Abstract

       

      AlPO4 has been compressed to pressures of 16 GPa in a diamond anvil cell and its X-ray diffraction pattern studied by the energy-dispersive technique. The compound is observed to become amorphous at ∼ 12 GPa. This explains the loss of Raman spectrum of AlPO4 reported by Jayaraman and coworkers (1987).
