High-temperature and high-pressure equations of state (EOSs) of Pt have been developed using measured shock compression data up to 290 GPa and volume thermal expansion data between 100 and nearly 2000 K and 0 GPa. The lattice thermal pressures at high temperatures have been estimated based on the Mie-Grüneisen relation with the Debye thermal model and the Vinet isothermal EOS. The contribution of electronic thermal pressure at high temperatures has also been included here. The optimized EOS parameters of Pt are KOT =273 GPa, K OT ′ =5.20, γ0 =2.70, and q=1.10 with 0 =230 K, where the subscript 0 refers to the ambient conditions. The temperature-pressure-volume (T-P-V) data of Pt have also been measured up to 1600 K and 42 GPa, using synchrotron powder x-ray diffraction experiments combined with a Kawai-type multianvil high pressure apparatus and sintered diamond anvils. We find that the newly developed T-P-V EOS of Pt is fully consistent with not only the shock compression data up to 290 GPa and volume thermal expansion data up to near 2000 K, but also the present measured synchrotron T-P-V data and recently measured T-P-V data of Pt up to 1900 K and 80 GPa. Thus we find that there is no need to include a volume dependence of q over a wide pressure range up to more than 300 GPa. The present EOS has been developed without any pressure scale. Such excellent consistency between the EOS and experimental values over wide temperature and pressure ranges shows that the present EOS can be used as a reliable primary pressure standard for static experiments up to 300 GPa and 3000 K.
