The pressure induced structural and mechanical properties of nanocrystalline ZnO, ZnS, ZnSe, GaN, CoO, CdSe, CeO(2), SnO(2), SiC, c-BC(2)N, and β-Ga(2)O(3) with different grain sizes have been analyzed under high pressures. The molecular dynamics simulation model has been used to compute isothermal equation of state, volume collapse and bulk modulus of these materials in nano and bulk phases at ambient and high pressures and compared with the experimental data. It is evident from these calculations that the change in particle size affects directly the phase transition pressure and bulk modulus. The values of phase transition pressure and bulk modulus increase with decrease in grain size of the material. The equilibrium cell volume and volume collapse in parent phase is directly proportional to the grain size of the materials. Present results are in good agreement with experimental data. The model is able to explain these thermodynamic properties at varying temperatures and pressures successfully.
