The high pressure structural behavior of nitric acid dihydrate ([H3O](+)center dot[NO3](-)center dot H2O) has been investigated up to 3.8 GPa using single crystal x-ray diffraction and neutron powder diffraction techniques. A new structural phase has been identified above 1.33 GPa and this has been further studied by ab initio quantum mechanical calculations. These have guided the refinement by neutron powder diffraction.
