Safety Information
Phenyl phosphine Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesPhenylphosphine is a clear, colorless liquid. Foul odor.
  • Usessuzuki reaction
  • UsesExposure to phenylphosphine may occur when phenylphosphinates (used as catalysts and antioxidants) are heated above 200°C, yielding phenylphosphonic acid derivatives and phenylphosphine.
  • General DescriptionClear colorless liquid.
  • Air & Water ReactionsPyrophoric in air. Insoluble in water. Slowly generates flammable or noxious gases in contact with water.
  • Reactivity ProfilePhenyl phosphine is a reducing agent. They slowly generate flammable or noxious gases in contact with water. Phosphides react quickly upon contact with moisture or acids to give the very toxic gas phosphine; phosphides also can react vigorously with oxidizing materials. In general, materials in this group are incompatible with oxidizers such as atmospheric oxygen. They are violently incompatible with acids, particularly oxidizing acids.
  • Health HazardPhenylphosphine is a respiratory and skin irritant; multiple exposures in rodents causes hematologic changes and testicular degeneration in males.
  • Fire HazardFlash point data are not available for Phenyl phosphine, but Phenyl phosphine is probably combustible.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by inhalation. Igmtes spontaneously in air. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of POx. See also PHOSPHINE.
  • Potential ExposurePolyphosphinate is used as an intermediate or a chemical reagent. Polyphosphinate compounds are used as catalysts and antioxidants disproportionate, when heated to give phosphonic acid derivatives plus PF.
  • ShippingUN2845 Pyrophoric liquids, organic, n.o.s Hazard Class: 4.2, Labels: 4.2-Spontaneously combustible material. Technical Name Required. Note: this chemical is also a strong reducing agent.
  • IncompatibilitiesA strong reducing agent. Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides. Water reactive; spontaneously combustible in high concentrations in moist air. Potential exposure to gaseous phenylphosphine and phosphorus oxides when heated above 200C. Organophosphates are susceptible to formation of highly toxic and flammable phosphine gas in the presence of strong reducing agents such as hydrideds and active metals. Partial oxidation by oxidizing agents may result in the release of toxic phosphorus oxides.
