Phenylphosphonic Acid Market: Overview

Phenylphosphonic acid is an organic phosphorous compound in which phenyl group and phosphorous are directly bonded. This acid is stronger than other carboxylic acids. It is produced in the form of white crystalline powder. Phenylphosphonic acid has superior thermal stability and has two functional groups, namely phenyl and acid groups, which impart excellent surface modifier properties to the acid. Phenylphosphonic acid is highly soluble in solvents such as water, methanol, ethanol, dimethylformamide (DMF), and acetone; however, it is insoluble in toluene, hexane, and carbon tetrachloride. It is toxic in nature and causes skin irritation. The use of phenylphosphonic acid is gaining importance in the field of agriculture and medicine.
