RemarksWhite phosphorus (P4) is soft and flammable, red phosphorus is powdery and usually non-flammable. Neither form reacts with water or dilute acid but alkalis react to form phosphine gas. Used in fertilizers, insecticides, metal treatment, detergents, etc
Diagnostic TestsCompounds containing phosphates (PO43-) give a green flame test, especially after being moistened with sulfuric acid (H2SO4) although this test may be rendered unsatisfactory due to other coloring agents. If a powdered sample is fused in a closed tube with metallic sodium or magnesium and afterward moistened with water, hydrogen phosphide is given off, recognized by its disagreeable odor.
