ETHYL PHOSPHONOUS DICHLORIDE is an acid halide and organophosphate. Flammable/combustible material. May ignite on contact with air or moist air. May burn rapidly with flare-burning effect. May react vigorously or explosively if mixed with diisopropyl ether or other ethers in the presence of trace amounts of metal salts [J. Haz. Mat., 1981, 4, 291].
Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Inhalation of decomposition products may cause severe injury or death. Contact with substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Runoff from fire control may cause pollution.
A colorless liquid with a pungent odor. Denser than water. Very toxic by inhalation.
Colorless to light yellow liqui
Air & Water Reactions
Highly flammable. Pyrophoric, will spontaneously ignite on contact with water or moisture in air. In water the compound also decomposes to form hydrochloric acid, [AAR 1991].
Flammable/combustible material. May ignite on contact with moist air or moisture. May burn rapidly with flare-burning effect. Some react vigorously or explosively on contact with water. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May re-ignite after fire is extinguished. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated.
