The electrical transport properties of indium trisulfide (In2S3) under high pressure were investigated using the in situ Hall-effect and temperature dependent resistivity measurements. Resistivity, Hall coefficient, carrier concentration, and mobility were obtained at pressures up to 41.6 GPa. Pressure induced metallization of In2S3 occurred at approximately 6.8 GPa. This was determined by measuring temperature dependent resistivity. The metallization transition was also determined from compression electrical parameters, and the decompression electrical parameters indicated that the metallization was a reversible transition. The main cause of the sharp decline in resistivity was the increase in carrier concentration at 6.8 GPa. Superconductivity was not observed at the pressures (up to 32.5 GPa) and temperatures (100-300 K) used in the experiment.
