ZnTe which exhibits a few characteristic resistance changes under pressure has been studied in regard of volume change by a recently confirmed manganin coil method. Relatively large volume reductions are observed at 90 and 120 kbar correspond ing to the abrupt resistance changes. A small volume reduction found at 70 kbar may suggest an existence of an isostructural transition.
