electronic grade (99.9999 wt% minimum purity) and technical grade (99.99% minimum purity).
Phosphorus is used mainly in production of phosphoric acid (and other similar compounds) for its use in fertilizers, pharmaceuticals and animal feeds. It is also used in detergents; safety matches; antioxidant and color suppressant for powder coatings; flame retardants; semiconductors; and as bullet tracer.
pure phosphoric acid; aluminium phosphide; calcium hypophosphite; p-chlorothiophenol; magnesium phosphide; phosphine; phosphorus pentasulfide; phosphorus pentoxide; phosphorus sesquisulfide; phosphorus trichloride; sodium hypophosphite; thiophenol; triphenylphosphine; and zinc phosphide.
  • Apatite + coke (or other carbon source) + quartz/silica (electric furnace reduction; production of white phosphorous)
  • White phosphorous (thermal conversion; production of red phosphorus)
Phosphorus (a.k.a. P4) is a nonmetallic element, with atomic number 15, a member of group 15 of the periodic table. It can be found in three allotropic forms, called red, black and white phosphorus. The red is a violet-brown powder, the black is a black solid, with strong resemblance to graphite, while the white is a transparent crystal, yellow to white with a waxlike form. Phosphorus can be found in nature widespread across the planet, although not in its free elemental form. It occurs primarily in mineral rocks, in the form of phosphorus compounds. The element was discovered in 1669; however, production only began in the 1830s, rapidly growing after World War II. The vast majority of the elemental phosphorus produced is later converted to phosphoric acid and other phosphoric compounds, for applications in the agricultural industry.
