Raman frequencies of six lattice modes are calculated as a function of pressure using the volume data from the literature by means of the isothermal mode Gruneisen parameter (gamma(T)) for the solid phase I of benzene. We find that by determining the yr decreasing, the Raman frequencies calculated for the phonon modes increase with increasing pressure in this solid phase of benzene, which agree with the observed Raman data. We also predict the T-P phase diagram between the solid phases of I and I' by using the calculated Raman frequencies of the six lattice modes of benzene. Our calculated T-P diagram does not match properly with the observed data, which needs to be reconsidered by analyzing a number of measurements for the I - I' transition in benzene.
