ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Phosphorus trichloride vapors are irritating to the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract.
- ONSET - Pulmonary edema may occur with onset delayed from 12 to 24 hours. This delay is similar to what may occur following chlrine gas exposures.
- SYMPTOMS - Direct contact may cause severe acid burns of any moist tissues including the eyes and mucosa of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Severe irritation or burns of the mouth, throat, esophagus, or gastrointestinal tract may follow ingestion. Subclinical elevations of liver enzymes or mild renal injury could occur.
- Dermatitis, dermal burns, vertigo, headache, dizziness, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, pleuritic chest discomfort, coughing, bronchitis, pneumonitis, and renal injuries (in experimental animals) have all been caused by phosphorus trichloride exposure.
- CHRONIC TOXICITY - At lower chronic exposure levels, asthma-like syndromes may develop followed by a chronic chemical pneumonitis or emphysema.
- When heated to decomposition phosphorus chloride emits highly toxic fumes of chloride and oxides of phosphorus.
