Diethyl Ethylphosphonate can be used as a flame retardant, and also used as a general reagent in phosphinoalkene and phosphinoalkyne synthesis.
Organophosphates, such as DIETHYL ETHYLPHOSPHONATE, are susceptible to formation of highly toxic and flammable phosphine gas in the presence of strong reducing agents such as hydrides. Partial oxidation by oxidizing agents may result in the release of toxic phosphorus oxides.
Colorless liquid with a mild odor.
