T he sequence of phase transition in ZrO 2 , TeO 2 SnO 2 and RuO 2 has attracted a special attention in the field of crystal chemistry, earth science and materials science. The lack of an adequate behavior of rutile type SiO 2 , SnO 2 and RuO 2 motivated many theoretical and experimental studies to understand the phase transition and amorphisation under ambient and extreme conditions like high pressure. This rutile type phase undergoes structural phase transition under high pressure to the CaCl 2 type structure. Of particular interest for accurate prediction are where and whether phase transition occur, since these give rise to density discontinuities, which can account for known seismic effects or even after the convention patterns in the mantle. In the present study, we present the first principles study on lattice dynamics, Raman modes and phonon dispersion curves with high pressure for SnO 2 and RuO 2 in ferroelastic Rutile to CaCl 2 phase. The phase transition pressure from rutile to CaCl 2 structure obtained in the present study is in excellent agreement with experimental Raman, X-ray and Brillouin scattering data. The softening of the Raman active B1 g phonon mode, which is responsible for the structural phase transition, is demonstrated.
