Thionyl ChlorideThionyl Chloride (SOCl2) is a colorless to yellow fuming liquid with a suffocating pungent odor. This chemical is a lachrymator and is highly corrosive and toxic. Long-term inhalation of low concentrations or short-term inhalation of high concentrations has adverse health effects.. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Thionyl Chloride. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
