NFPA 704
Diamond Hazard Value Description
1
1 1
Blue Health 1 Can cause significant irritation.
Red Flammability 1 Must be preheated before ignition can occur.
Yellow Instability 1 Normally stable but can become unstable at elevated temperatures and pressures.
White Special
(NFPA, 2010)
General Description
Black crystalline or amorphous solid resembling graphite. Conducts electricity. Denser than water and insoluble in water. Hence sinks in water. (USCG, 1999)

Hazards

The Hazard fields include special hazard alerts, air and water reactions, fire hazards, health hazards, a reactivity profile, and details about reactive groups assignments and potentially incompatible absorbents. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Reactivity Alerts
none
Air & Water Reactions
Stable in air. Does not spontaneously ignite in air (a property of white or yellow phosphorus). Insoluble in water.
Fire Hazard
No information available.
Health Hazard
No information available.
Reactivity Profile
PHOSPHORUS, [BLACK] is a reducing agent. Much less reactive than the allotropic white phosphorus. Reacts strongly with bromine trifluoride. [Mellor 2:113. 1946-47]. Explodes on contact with bromoazide.
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)
