Phosazetim Usage And Synthesis
Phosacetim is a white crystalline powder in appearance. It is a toxic organophosphate compound used as a rodenticide and acts as an inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase enzyme. On heating, phosacetim undergoes decomposition to emit toxic fumes, primarily chlorides and oxides of nitrogen, sulphur, and phosphorus. Phosacetim is susceptible to formation of highly toxic and flammable phosphine gas in the presence of strong reducing agents such as hydrides. Partial oxidation by oxidising agents may result in the release of toxic phosphorus oxides.

Organothiophosphates, such as Phosazetim, are susceptible to formation of highly toxic and flammable phosphine gas in the presence of strong reducing agents such as hydrides. Partial oxidation by oxidizing agents may result in the release of toxic phosphorus oxides.
Highly toxic by mouth and skin exposure.
When heated to decomposition, emits toxic fumes, primarily chlorides and oxides of nitrogen, sulfur and phosphorus. Avoid extreme heat.
Poison by ingestion, skin contact,and intraperitoneal routes. A pesticide. When heated todecomposition it emits very toxic fumes of SOx, POx, Cl-,and NOx.
Used as a rodenticide.
UN2783 Organophosphorus pesticides, solid, toxic, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials.
Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides, nitrates. May hydrolyze on contact with moisture
Consult with environmental regulatory agencies for guidance on acceptable disposal practices. Generators of waste containing this contaminant (≥100 kg/mo) must conform with EPA regulations governing storage, transportation, treatment, and waste disposal. In accordance with 40CFR165, follow recommendations for the disposal of pesticides and pesticide containers. Must be disposed properly by following package label directions or by contacting your local or federal environmental control agency, or by contacting your regional EPA office.
