International audience; The high-pressure technique is an efficient tool in solid-state chemistry for preparing new materials of low stability or metastable character. During the last 20 years, this technique has been used and developed especially in three principal areas : synthesis of new materials, either for a better basic approach of scientific problems or for industrial applications studies of structural transformations in situ evolution of some physical properties of materials under pressureThe high-pressure technique is an efficient tool in solid state chemistry. Owing to the fact that 90% of the materials in the universe are under high-pressure conditions (more than 100 kbar) such a technique becomes a cross-road between many disciplines.
