Powder x-ray diffraction data for FeS polymorphs were collected at high pressure and temperature, using monochromatic synchrotron x-radiation and image plate. The diffraction data collected at 10.95 GPa and 300 K revealed a monoclinic high-pressure phase (FeS III) with cell parameters, a = 8.025(4) Å, b = 5.614(2) Å, C = 6.414(4) Å, and β = 93.01(4)°. The space group of this monoclinic phase is P21la. We also collected diffraction data for the high PT phase (FeS IV) at 5.2 GPa and 9.0 GPa and at 530 K and for the high-T phase (FeS V) at 3.4 GPa and 650 K. The FeS IV phase has a hexagonal (2a, c) unit cell (space group P63mc) and the FeS V phase has a simple NiAs-type structure (space group P63/mmc). The structure parameters were determined by Rietveld refinements.
