Materials Under Extreme Conditions

Molecular Crystals at High Pressure


High-pressure materials research has been revolutionized in the past few years due to technological breakthroughs in the diamond anvil cell (DAC), shock wave compression and molecular dynamic simulation (MD) methods. The application of high pressure, especially together with high temperature, has revealed exciting modifications of physical and chemical properties even in the simplest molecular materials.

The Shock of Your Life

After a fatal accident, three young people are catapulted into eternity. Read how Dan, a non-Christian; Becky, a lukewarm Christian; and Emma, a red-hot believer, get the shock of their lives as they discover what life after death is really like. Written especially for the next generation, The Shock of Your Life grapples with the…

Besides the fundamental importance of these studies to understand the composition and the dynamics of heart and planets' interior, new materials possessing peculiar characteristics of hardness and composition have been synthesized at very high pressure, while unexpected chemical reactions of simple molecules to polymers and amorphous compounds have been found at milder conditions.

The variety of the phenomena observed in these extreme conditions and of the materials involved provides a common ground bridging scientific communities with different cultural and experimental backgrounds. This monograph will provide a timely opportunity to report on recent progress in the field.
