(H2) and elemental sulfur (S8) under high pressure, induced directly by x-ray illumination, at photon energies of 12 keV using a free electron laser. The rapid synthesis of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) at 0.3 GPa was confirmed by optical observations, spectroscopic measurements, and micro-structural changes detected by x-ray diffraction. These results document x-ray induced chemical synthesis of superconductor-forming dense hydrides, revealing an alternative production strategy and confirming the disruptive nature of x-ray exposure in studies on high-pressure hydrogen chalcogenides, from water to high-temperature superconductors.
