This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of modern high pressure solid-state synthesis methods, with a specific focus on their integration with in situ X-ray diffraction methods. Fundamental concepts in solid-state synthesis are re-examined within the context of synthesis at high pressures, and additional considerations specific to high pressure are introduced. We examine three common apparatuses for achieving high pressures: the Paris–Edinburgh press, the diamond anvil cell, and the multi-anvil press. We present the advantages and disadvantages of each method in the context of high-pressure synthesis, using illustrative examples from the literature. We hope that this chapter will provide the curious solid-state chemist with the foundational understanding required to begin their foray into world of high-pressure synthesis.
