Abstract We have determined the room-temperature compressibility of pure, synthetic zircon (ZrSiO4). Unit-cell volumes of a powdered sample were determined in situ as a function of pressure up to 27 GPa in a diamond anvil cell (DAC), by using angle-dispersive synchrotron X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques. Unit-cell volumes were fitted to a Birch-Murnaghan equation of state, resulting in a roomtemperature bulk modulus for the zircon structure, KT0 = 199 ± 1 GPa, and ambient pressure unit-cell… Expand
