The aim of the present work was to determine the compressibility and to characterize briefly the room-temperature phase transition from the sphalerite to the cinnabar structure under high-pressure conditions for various Hg1-xZnxSe mixed crystals. High quality Hg1-xZnxSe crystals were grown at the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw using the modified Bridgman method. The phase analysis and compositions of these samples were determined by the X-ray diffraction using conventional X-ray powder diffractometer. In analysed mixed crystals from a few to about 20% of Hg atoms were replaced by Zn atoms.
