The pressure-temperature (p-T) phase diagram of NH3BH3 has been investigated by thermal conductivity measurements up to 1.5 GPa at temperatures between 100 and 300 K, and the phase boundaries between the three known structural phases have been identified. The transformation between the room temperature tetragonal I4mm phase and the low temperature orthorhombic Pmn21 phase (Tc = 218 K at p = 0) shows only a small hysteresis. The transformation into the high pressure orthorhombic Cmc21 phase (at 1.0 GPa near 292 K) has a very strong hysteresis, up to Δp = 0.5 GPa, and below 230 K a fraction of this phase is metastable even at atmospheric pressure.
