Phosphorus oxychloride is a colourless liquid with a sharp, very characteristic odour. It is very easily hydrolysed, which is accompanied by the release of fumes, and the products of the hydrolysis are phosphoric acid and hydrogen chloride. The reaction of oxychloride with water is very rapid. Due to the high exothermicity of the process and the release of large amounts of asphyxiating hydrogen chloride, transport and storage should take place in tightly sealed packages, protected from moisture or water ingress.
