  • The H2S–IV phase is stable at pressures greater than 5 GPa and temperatures below 150 K, and is stable at higher pressures for higher temperatures. Shimizu et al. (Shimizu, 1995) determined the phase diagram. Endo et al. (Endo, 1998) found the crystal structure at 11.4 GPa, but could not determine the positions of the hydrogen atoms. Here we use the predicted structure from Li et al. at 30 GPa.

Simple Monoclinic primitive vectors:

\[ \begin{array}{ccc} \mathbf{a}_1 & = & a \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} \\ \mathbf{a}_2 & = & b \, \mathbf{\hat{y}} \\ \mathbf{a}_3 & = & c \cos\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} + c \sin\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{z}} \\ \end{array} \]
