Pressure-induced phase transformations (PIPTs) occur in a wide range of materials. In general, the bonding characteristics, before and after the PIPT, remain invariant in most materials, and the bond rearrangement is usually irreversible due to the strain induced under pressure. A reversible PIPT associated with a substantial bond rearrangement has been found in a metal-organic framework material, namely [tmenH2][Er(HCOO) 4]2 (tmenH2 2+=N,N,N',N'- tetramethylethylenediammonium). The transition...[Show more]
