Risk Phrases: R23, R28, R15/29. Toxic by inhalation. Very toxic if swallowed. Contact with water liberates toxic, highly flammable gas.
Safety Phrases: S14, S20, S38. Keep away from water and water based materials. When using, do not eat or drink. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
SUSMP Classification: S7
ADG Classification: Class 4.3: Substance which, in contact with water, emits flammable gas. Sub Risk: Class 6.1: Toxic substances.
UN Number: 1397, ALUMINIUM PHOSPHIDE

Emergency Overview

Physical Description & colour: White tablets or pellets.
Odour: Produces colourless phosphine gas which has a carbide-like odour.
Major Health Hazards: Aluminum phosphide is not absorbed dermally; the main routes of exposure are through ingestion and inhalation. It is highly toxic via both these routes. The reported rodent oral LD50 is 11.5 mg/kg for the refined version, with that for the technical compound presumably lower. Aluminum phosphide ingested orally reacts with water and stomach acids to produce phosphine gas, which may account in a large part for observed toxicity.

Aluminium phosphide 20859-73-8 56 not set not set
Other non hazardous ingredients secret to 100 not set not set

 

This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The SWA TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5 day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL. The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

section 11 - Toxicological Information: 

Toxicity: Acute Toxicity: Aluminum phosphide is not absorbed dermally; the main routes of exposure are through ingestion and inhalation. It is highly toxic via both these routes. The reported rodent oral LD50 is 11.5 mg/kg for the refined version, with that for the technical compound presumably lower. Aluminum phosphide ingested orally reacts with water and stomach acids to produce phosphine gas, which may account in a large part for observed toxicity. Phosphine generated in the gastrointestinal tract is readily absorbed in to the bloodstream, and it is readily absorbed through the lung epithelium. Phosphine may cause denaturing of oxyhaemoglobin (the carrier for systemic distribution of oxygen) as well as enzymes important for respiration and metabolism, and may also have effects on cellular membranes. Inhaled aluminum phosphide dust undergoes the same reaction in the moist air sacs of the lung, although at a lower rate, resulting in similar local and systemic effects. The rodent 4-hour inhalation LC50 for phosphine gas (the product of phosphide reaction with water) is widely reported as 15 mg/m3 (15 μg/L, or approximately 10.7 ppm). Recent study indicates that the rodent 4-hour inhalation LC50 may exceed 15 mg/m3. In this study, male and female rats experienced no mortality at one-time 6-hour exposure levels of 15 mg/meters cubed. Red mucous discharge from the nostrils ceased during a 14-day recovery period; postmortem examination revealed no gross or microscopic treatment-related effects. Symptoms of mild to moderate acute aluminum phosphide toxicity include nausea, abdominal pain, tightness in chest, excitement, restlessness, agitation and chills. Symptoms of more severe toxicity include, diarrhoea, cyanosis, difficulty breathing, pulmonary oedema, respiratory failure, tachycardia (rapid pulse) and hypotension (low blood pressure), dizziness and/or death. Convulsions have been reported in lab animals exposed to high concentrations of phosphine. Severe exposure may also result in proteinuria or glucosuria (low molecular weight proteins or glucose in the urine) indicating kidney damage. Pathological examination of exposed laboratory animal tissue and results of post-mortem examinations of phosphine poisoning victims generally indicate hypoxia, with evidence of local trauma in the gastrointestinal tract or lungs, liver, kidneys and central nervous system. Data from a cohort of occupationally-exposed Indian agricultural fumigation workers undergoing single exposures of approximately 1-3 mg/m3 (0.71 - 2.22 ppm) revealed reversible (within 2 weeks) symptoms of mild acute exposure (of the types noted above).

Chronic Toxicity: Rats fed aluminum phosphide-fumigated food averaging 0.51 ppm phosphine residues (approximately 0.43 mg/kg/day) showed no differences from the control animals with respect to blood or urine chemistry and no observable differences in tissue structure. It was reported that workers had probably encountered similar exposures on an intermittent basis (in some cases over as long as a 20 year period) and had yet to show signs of toxicity , which suggests that chronic effects may be minor or have a very long latency period. Inhalation studies were conducted on the effects of phosphine gas on male and female rats exposed at levels of 0.5, 1.5, and 4.5 mg/m3 for six hours per day over a 13 week period. Higher exposure groups (7.5 and 15 mg/m3) were added following preliminary acute test results. Results indicated that 15 mg/m3 was lethal to 4 out of ten female rats following three days of exposure. Significant treatment-related effects on body weight and decreased food consumption were seen across all treatment groups and sexes, but were reversible. Decreases in red-blood cell counts, haemoglobin, haematocrit and increased platelet counts were seen in male rats of the 4.5 mg/m3 group. Dose-related changes in blood urea nitrogen and other clinical parameters were also seen across exposure groups. Post-mortem examination of test animals revealed microscopic lesions in the outer cortex of the kidneys of rats exposed to 15 mg/m3, but not at lower exposure levels. All of these effects were apparently reversible following a four-week recovery period.
Reproductive Effects: Post-mortem examination of test animals revealed apparently reversible damage to seminal vesicles in male rats exposed to 1.5 mg/m3 phosphine. Pregnancy rates for female rats exposed to 4.5 mg/ m3 on days 6-10 of gestation were comparable to those in the unexposed group. No adverse effects on uterine implantation were seen in the 0.3, 3 and 4.5 mg/ m3 exposure groups, although a statistically significant elevation in resorptions was seen in the 0.015 mg/ m3 exposure group. Thus, this effect may not be dose-related as it there was not increased effect with increased dose. The available evidence for reproductive effects in animals suggest that reproductive effects are not likely in humans under normal conditions.
Teratogenic Effects: No effects on foetal birth weights or sex ratios were seen in offspring of rats exposed to up to 4.5 mg/m3 for six hours a day on days 6-10 of gestation. No statistically significant differences in development or morphology were seen in the offspring of rats in the exposed groups versus unexposed groups upon external, visceral or skeletal evaluation. The available evidence for teratogenic effects in animals suggests that such effects are not likely in humans under normal conditions.
Mutagenic Effects: No evidence was available regarding the ability of aluminum phosphide or phosphine to cause mutations or increase the mutation rate. Studies of human lymphocyte cultures exposed under laboratory conditions showed significant increases in phosphine-induced total chromosomal aberrations (e.g. gaps, deletions, breaks or exchanges) with increasing phosphine concentrations. In the same study, analysis of lymphocyte cultures drawn from fumigators (using phosphine exclusively) exposed to phosphine showed significant increases in the same types of chromosomal aberrations.
Carcinogenic Effects: No data are currently available; it is possible that some testing on the oncogenicity may be initiated in the near future.
Organ Toxicity: Acute toxicity resulting from aluminum phosphide exposure is apparent most immediately in the heart and lungs; it may also affect the central nervous system, liver and kidneys.
Fate in Humans & Animals: As stated above, aluminum phosphide rapidly reacts with water to form highly toxic phosphine gas. It has been reported that aluminum phosphide may be absorbed directly into the bloodstream, although this is probably a very minor route of entry. That phosphine which is not expired through the lungs may be metabolized to phosphates, hypophosphite and phosphite .

section 12 - Ecological Information: 

Effects on Birds: The precise oral or inhalation median lethal doses for aluminum phosphide or phosphine in birds are not known. It is reported that exposure of turkeys and hens to 211 and 224 mg/m3 for 74 and 59 minutes respectively resulted in labored breathing, swelling of organs, tonic-clonic convulsions and death. Due to the mechanism of action it is likely that it could similarly affect other bird species at similar levels of exposure. Fortunately, such exposure is not very likely, as phosphine is rapidly dissipated in open air.
Effects on Aquatic Species: The reported acute LC50 is 4.1 μg/L in rainbow trout, indicating very high toxicity. No data were available regarding the specific toxicity of aluminum phosphide or of phosphine to other fish or aquatic species (e.g. LC50 or EC50 values), but due to the mechanism of action it is likely that it will be very highly toxic to them as well. Such exposure is unlikely; aluminum phosphide will rapidly react to form phosphine gas, which is somewhat soluble in water, but will mainly bubble up into the air.
Effects on Other Animals (Non target species): No data were available.
ENVIRONMENTAL FATE:
Breakdown of Chemical in Soil and Groundwater: Aluminum phosphide will break down spontaneously in the presence of water to form a gaseous product, and so it is non-persistent and non-mobile in the soil environment, and poses no risk to groundwater.

Breakdown of Chemical in Surface Water: It is highly unlikely that aluminum phosphide or phosphine will be found in surface waters.
Breakdown of Chemical in Vegetation: No data were available.
