    The unit cell volume of CuCI as a function of pressure has been measured up to 7 GPa (giga Pascals). The compression behaviour is quite normal. The analysis of the compression data gives 40-3 xB1; 1-5 GPa for the bulk modulus of the zinc blende phase. The zinc blende phase transforms to a tetragonal phase at 5-5 GPa, the volume change associated with the transformation being 12%. A comparison of the bulk modulus of CuCI with those of CuBr and Cul indicates that13; an anomaly exists in this group.
