High-Pressure Transformations of Dioxides with the Rutile Structure

  • L.-G. Liu


PbO2, SnO2, TiO2, MnO2, GeO2, and SiO2 are the only dioxides which crystallize in the rutile structure under appropriate P-T conditions and have been known to transform to other dense modifications at high pressures. This paper represents an attempt to summarize my studies of the post-rutile phases of these dioxides and to review the literature and unpublished data on this subject.
