Phosphorus OxychloridePhosphorus Oxychloride (POCl3) is a water-reactive, air-reactive, corrosive, colorless fumng liquid that has a pungent odor. It is highly toxic by inhalation and it is used in gasoline additives and hydraulic fluids. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Phosphorus Oxychloride. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
