Phosphorus pentoxide Usage And Synthesis
OutlineAlso known as phosphoric anhydride, phosphorus pentoxide is phosphorus oxides generated by combustion of white phosphorus, yellow or red phosphorus in dry air, soft white powder or colorless monoclinic crystal at room temperature, easily deliquescence, melting point is 580~585 ℃, relative density is 2.39, sublimation is 347 ℃. When heated under pressure to 563 ℃, crystalline substance translates to amorphous glass (melt). It is insoluble in acetone, ammonia, soluble in sulfuric acid. It is easy to absorb moisture in the air, easy to absorb moisture, and have a strong dehydration, can even dehydrate concentrated sulfuric acid to produce sulfur trioxide, is a potent desiccant, reacts violently with water and emits heat and white smoke. Per mole of phosphorus pentoxide releases 68 kilocalories, usually generate metaphosphate with cold water, and generate mainly phosphoric acid with hot water. According to the amount of water added, it can generate different pentavalent phosphorus oxyacid, such as metaphosphoric acid, pyrophosphoric acid, orthophosphoric acid, etc. It is used to make high purity phosphoric acid, as well as gas and liquid desiccant, organic synthetic dehydrating agent.
Risk categoryClass 8.1 acidic corrosive product
Hazardous characteristicsNon-combustible. But encountering water and organic materials such as wood, cotton or straw, it reacts violently to release heat, may cause a fire. Contacting Water, it can emit a lot of smoke and heat. The case of the moisture, it corrodes most metals slightly. A strong local irritation, vapor with dust can severely irritate the eyes, mucous membranes, skin and respiratory system, and corrode the skin, mucous membranes. Even the dust concentration of 1mg/m3, it is unbearable.

Reaction with waterIt reacts with cold water to produce extremely toxic metaphosphate: P2O5 + H2O = 2HPO3
and reacts with hot water to produce ontoxic orthophosphate: P2O5 + 3H2O = (heating) 2H3PO4, an exothermic reaction, the phenomenon is not very intense.
ToxicityPhosphorus pentoxide smoke irritates mucous membranes, has irritation and burning effects for skin (tissue dehydration).
Maximum allowable concentration is 1mg/rn3.
Production equipment and pipelines should be closed, and maintain good ventilation. Production workers should wear labor protective equipments and wear protective respirator, when there are phosphorus pentoxide vapor and smoke , should wear protective masks. Pay attention to protect the skin, do not import, or meet the eye. If accidentally touches the skin, immediately wash with clean water.
Water absorptionThere is a strong water imbibition, and easily deliquescent in the air, corrosive to the skin. The maximum allowable concentration in the workplace is 1mg/m3. The drying efficiency of Phosphorus pentoxide is 1 cubic meter 0.00001 grams of water vapor content at 298K, namely dried by phosphorus pentoxide, water left per cubic meter of air is up to 0.00001 gram, phosphorus pentoxide can make sulfuric acid, nitric acid dehydration. When the amount of phosphorus pentoxide and water substance is 1: 6, phosphorus pentoxide can convert to orthophosphoric acid.

Production methodReagent grade phosphorus pentoxide is as raw material, purified by burning sublimation in sufficiently dry oxygen gas stream, trapping sublimate by the condenser, to obtain high-purity phosphorus pentoxide products.
Yellow phosphorus is heated and melted by oxidation method, transfered to the oxidation furnace for oxidation combustion reaction with dry air (via dehydration of concentrated sulfuric acid), phosphorus pentoxide produced is sublimated by heat, cold in the top of burners and falls into interior settling chamber at the bottom, to prepare pentoxide products.
Exhaust escapes from the oxidation furnace to a cyclone to recover phosphorus pentoxide dust. Recycling and the settling chamber finished product are together packaged as a finished product. P4 + 5O2 → 2P2O5

General DescriptionA white amorphous powder. Corrosive to metals and tissue and moderately toxic.
Air & Water ReactionsReadily absorbs moisture from the air forming a syrup of meta-, pyro-, and orthophosphoric acids. Reacts violently with water releasing considerable heat [Oldbury Chemicals, p. 9].
Reactivity ProfilePhosphorus pentoxide reacts violently and exothermically with water. The heat can ignite surrounding or admixed combustible materials. Undergoes hazardous or violent reactions with metal hydroxides and oxides, formic acid, hydrogen fluoride and hydrofluoric acid, iodides, metals (in particular potassium and sodium), oxidizing agents (bromine pentafluoride, chlorine trifluoride, perchloric acid, oxygen difluoride, hydrogen peroxide), ammonia, and proparygl alcohol. [Bretherick, 5th ed., 1995, p. 1781; EPA, 1998]. A violent explosion occurs if a solution of perchloric acid in chloroform is poured over phosphorus pentaoxide [EPA, 1998].
Health HazardPowder and fumes in the air are irritating to eyes and the respiratory tract. Particles in contact with eye react vigorously and even a small amount may cause permanent burns. Contact with the skin will cause severe burns. Ingestion will damage the gastrointestinal tract. Corrosive to skin, mucous membranes and eyes.
Fire HazardReacts violently with water to evolve heat. Flammable poisonous gases may accumulate in tanks and hopper cars. Phosphorus pentoxide reacts violently with the following: ammonia, hydrofluoric acid, oxygen difluoride, potassium, sodium, propargyl alcohol, calcium oxide, sodium hydroxide and chlorine trifluoride. A violent explosion occurs if a solution of perchloric acid in chloroform is poured over phosphorus pentoxide. Avoid formic acid, hydrogen fluoride, inorganic bases, metals, oxidants, water. Readily absorbs moisture from air to form meta-, pryo-, or orthophosphoric acid.
