PentachlorophenolPentachlorophenol (C6HCl5O) is a white crystalline solid. It is toxic by inhalation, ingestion, skin absorption and is used as a herbicide, insecticide, fungicide, algaecide, disinfectant, and wood preservative. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Pentachlorophenol. That’s why we suggest one of the following: TURFLoc, CHEMLoc, Flammable storage
