High-pressure behaviors of hydrogen-bonded molecular crystal, sulfamic acid (NH3+SO3-, SA), have been investigated using Raman spectroscopy and synchrotron X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques up to the pressure of similar to 20 GPa. Under ambient conditions, molecules of SA are arranged in puckered layers and held together by hydrogen bonding and electrostatic interactions. It is proved by the Raman results that SA undergoes the molecular conformation changes in the pressure range 8.1-10.2 GPa. Then between 10.2 and 12.7 GPa, a phase transition is observed in both Raman and XRD patterns. Both the ambient and high-pressure phases of SA crystallize in Pbca symmetry with similar unit-cell dimensions. The mechanism of the phase transition involves relative movements of adjacent hydrogen-bonded molecules, accompanied by the rearrangement of hydrogen bonds and the enhancement of electrostatic interactions.
