Abstract
A pressure-induced phase transition is detected in crystals of anthraq uinone at approximate to 2.3 GPa by Raman phonon spectra. Related fluo rescence experiments indicate a phase transition mechanism similar to that recently observed in 9,10-dihalogenated anthracene derivatives, l eading to a less relaxed excimer state after the transition. Lattice d ynamics calculations under pressure reproduce the observed phase trans ition and confirm the transition mechanism.
