High pressure studies using Diamond Anvil Cells were carried out in antiferromagnetic insulator transition metal iodides characterized by their layered structure. Magnetic properties studied by 129I Mössbauer Spectroscopy, the equation of state obtained from X-ray diffraction and metal insulator transition deduced from R(T, P) provided a detailed analysis of Mott insulators under the high pressure regime and the nature of the pressure induced Mott transition.
