Properties: Oily liq. Slight odor. Poisonous! bp1.0 169-170°. d425 1.2683. nD20 1.50959. uv max: 274 nm (e 8.9´103). Soly in water (25°): 2400 mg/mL. Freely sol in ether, other organic solvents. Aq solns are stable up to pH 7. Roughly 300 times more stable to hydrolysis than tetraethyl pyrophosphate. The uncatalyzed reaction with water is very small and the overall velocity constant is K = 0.52[OH] + 1´10-6 min-1. See: Coates, Ann. Appl. Biol. 36, 158 (1949). LD50 orally in rats: 1.8 mg/kg (Pickering, Malone).
