Phosphorus pentasulfide is an inorganic compound that is usually found in a solid form. Phosphorus pentasulfide appears greenish yellow which sometimes changes to a greenish gray color due to impurities.
Phosphorus pentasulfide is soluble in carbon disulfide while it is insoluble in alternative usually used solvents admire DMF and DMSO and reacts strongly with them. In addition, phosphorus pentasulfide reacts with moisture or water to form hydrogen sulfide, a highly flammable and toxic gas air may present an explosion hazard.
Phosphorus pentasulfide is easily ignited by friction and also by contact with sparks. Phosphorus pentasulfide has the same odor as hydrogen sulfide, almost like the reek of rotten eggs. Phosphorus pentasulfide is hazardous for human contact and causes serious eye and skin irritation with potential long term damage.
