CAS RN: 96-64-0

Other Properties

Freezing point: -70 deg C
Volatility: 3,060 mg/cu m at 25 deg C
G-agents are miscible in both polar and nonpolar solvents. They hydrolyze slowly in water at neutral or slightly acidic pH and more rapidly under strong acid or alkaline conditions. The hydrolysis products are considerably less toxic than the original agent. /G-agents/
Although the G-agents are liquids under ordinary atmospheric conditions, their relatively high volatility permits them to be disseminated in vapor form. /G-agents/
Colorless, odorless /G-agents/
Density: 1.026 at 20 deg C
GB and other G-agents react with perhydryl ions at pH 9 to 10 to form a perphosphonate ion, which has a sufficiently high redox potential to oxidize indole or o-dianisidine to produce colored products. /G-agents/
Reacts readily with nucleophiles, hypochlorite anions, peroxide anions, phenols, oximes, hydroxamic acids, amines, alcoholates.
Henry's Law constant = 4.7X10-6 atm-cu m/mol at 25 deg C /derived from vapor pressure and water solubility/
Hydroxyl radical reaction rate constant = 5.0X10-11 cu cm/molec-sec at 25 deg C (est)
