Diamond anvil cells provide a means to obtain near-hydrostatic pressures from the kilobar to the megabar regime. Mössbauer spectroscopy (MS) nicely complements the optical and X-ray measurements usually made. After a brief summary of the techniques applicable to MS, we present several examples of high-pressure MS, including hysteresis in the α-ε transition in Fe, metallization in molecular crystals and the insulator-metal Mott transition in NiI2 and CoI2.
