The room temperature compressibility of one synthetic chamosite and two intermediate iron magnesium chlorites has been measured up to 87 kbar in situ using a MAX-80 multi-anvil press and synchrotron radiation. The Murnaghan bulk compressibility moduli range between 690 and 911 kbar. These values are much higher than data previously published by Hazen & Finger (1978).
