Abstract

The structures of molten KC1 and KBr were studied by energy dispersive X ray diffraction experiments under high temperature and high pressure using synchrotron radiation. The radial distribution function g(r) for molten KC1 and KBr was obtained at several points just above the melting temperatures up to 4 GPa. The second neighbor ionic distance decreases with pressure, although the nearest neighbor distance is almost constant. The coordination number of the nearest neighbor ions increases with pressure. Both melts transform from an open, simple-cubic-like structure into a more highly coordinated structure, probably a body-center-cubic-like structure. The structure of molten KC1 changes before the crystalline phase but the molten KBr transforms into a dense phase about the same time as the solid. In both KC1 and KBr melts the structural transition occurs over a narrow pressure range.
