Phosphorus trichloride (PCl3)

Phosphoric trichloride is a colourless, smoky liquid with a strong characteristic odour that may resemble hydrogen chloride. From a chemical point of view it is an inorganic acid chloride. Its reaction with water is immediate and very violent, accompanied by a strong exothermic effect and the release of gadeous hydrogen chloride. Therefore, transport and storage should be carried out in tightly closed containers, protected from moisture or water.
