The effect of high hydrostatic pressure, up to 12GPa, on the intramolecular phonon frequencies and the material stability of the two-dimensional tetragonal C60 polymer has been studied by means of Raman spectroscopy in the spectral range of the radial intramolecular modes (200-800cm-1). A number of new Raman modes appear in the spectrum for pressures ∼ 1.4 and ∼ 5.0 GPa. The pressure coefficients for the majority of the phonon modes exhibit changes to lower values at P= 4.0 GPa, which may be related to a structural modification of the 2D polymer to a more isotropic phase. The peculiarities observed in the Raman spectra are reversible and the material is stable in the pressure region investigated.
