Phosphorus oxychloride is a colourless liquid with a strong, very characteristic odour. Hydrolysis very easily occurs, which is accompanied by the release of fumes, and its products are phosphoric acid and hydrogen chloride. The reaction of phosphorus oxychloride with water is very rapid. Due to the high exothermicity of the process and the release of high amounts of suffocating hydrogen chloride, transport and storage should be carried out in tightly closed containers protected against moisture or water ingress.
