Aluminum PhosphideAluminum Phosphide (AlP) is a toxic, strong reducing agent, water- and air-reactive, dark gray or yellow crystalline solid. Reacts with moisture to give phosphine, a flammable and poisonous gas which will ignite upon contact with air. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Aluminum Phosphide.
