Aluminum Phosphide Powder

Aluminum phosphide is a highly toxic inorganic compound with the chemical formula AlP used as a wide band gap semiconductor and a fumigant. The powder form of Aluminium phosphide has several applications, some of which are as follows:

Fumigant: Aluminium phosphide is primarily used as a fumigant for stored cereal grains, as well as a wide range of other agricultural products. It releases phosphine gas, which is highly toxic to pests such as insects and rodents. This makes it an effective tool for pest control in stored grains and other agricultural commodities.

Rodenticide: Aluminium phosphide is also used as a rodenticide, especially for the control of burrowing rodents. When exposed to atmospheric moisture, it reacts to release phosphine gas, which is highly toxic to rodents and other burrowing pests.

Pesticide: In some regions, aluminum phosphide is used as a pesticide for a variety of agricultural products. It is used to control pests that affect crops such as grains, fruits, and vegetables. However, its use as a pesticide is regulated and restricted in many countries due to its high toxicity.

Fungicide: In certain cases, aluminum phosphide is used as a fungicide to control fungal growth on certain crops. It can help prevent the spread of fungal infections and diseases in agricultural settings.

Semiconductor Industry: Apart from its use as a fumigant and pesticide, aluminum phosphide also finds application in the semiconductor industry. It is used in the production of various electronic components due to its properties as a semiconductor material, specifically its wide band gap and high thermal conductivity.
