SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

HEALTH HAZARDS (ACUTE AND CHRONIC)
To the best of our knowledge the chemical, physical and toxicological properties of tin phoshpide have not been thoroughly investigated and recorded.
Tin compounds have variable toxicity. Elemental tin and inorganic tin compounds have low toxicity and are poorly absorbed when ingested. Some inorganic tin salts are irritating or can liberate toxic fumes on decomposition. The latter is particularly true of tin halogens. (Sax, Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, eighth edition)
Phosphides are particularly dangerous because they tend to decompose to the very toxic phosphine upon contact with moisture or acids. (Sax, Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, eighth edition)
Phosphine is a poison by inhalation. A very toxic gas whose effects are central nervous system depression and lung irritation. There may be pulmonary edema, dilation of the heart, and hyperemia of the visceral organs. Inhalation can cause coma and convulsions leading to death within 48 hours. (Sax, Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, eighth edition)
INHALATION:
Acute: POISON. Inhalation of dust or powder may cause irritation to the respiratory system. Phosphine may cause thirst, chest pressure, dyspnea, muscle pain, chills and stupor.
Chronic: Inhalation of finely divided powder may cause pulmonary fibrosis. Phosphine may cause anemia, bronchitis, gastrointestinal disturbances. Visual, speech and motor disturbances may result from continued exposure to very low concentrations.
INGESTION:
Acute: POISON. May cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
Chronic: No chronic health hazards recorded.
SKIN:
Acute: May cause irritation.
Chronic: No chronic health effects recorded.
EYE:
Acute: May cause irritation.
Chronic: May cause visual disturbances.
TARGET ORGANS: May affect the respiratory and central nervous system.
CARCINOGENICITY: NTP? No IARC Monographs? No OSHA Regulated? No
RECOMMENDED EXPOSURE LIMITS
See "Section II"
LD 50 / LC 50
No toxicity data recorded
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
INHALATION: May cause a red, dry, throat and coughing. Phosphine may cause thirst, chest pressure, shortness of breath, muscle pain, chills and stupor.
INGESTION: May cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
SKIN: May cause red, itching and burning.
EYE: May cause red, itching and watering.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
Pre-existing respiratory disorders.
EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES
INHALATION: Remove victim to fresh air; keep warm and quiet; give oxygen if breathing is difficult and seek medical attention immediatley.
INGESTION: Give 1-2 glasses of milk or water and induce vomiting; seek medical attention immediatley. Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing; brush material off skin; wash affected area with mild soap and water; seek medical attention.
EYE: Flush eyes with lukewarm water, lifting upper and lower eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.

Phosphorus Bohr ModelSee more Phosphorus products. Phosphorus (atomic symbol: P, atomic number: 15) is a Block P, Group 15, Period 3 element. The number of electrons in each of Phosphorus's shells is 2, 8, 5 and its electronic configuration is [Ne] 3s2 3p3. The phosphorus atom has a radius of 110.5.pm and its Van der Waals radius is 180.pm. Phosphorus is a highly-reactive non-metallic element (sometimes considered a metalloid) with two primary allotropes, white phosphorus and red phosphorus its black flaky appearance is similar to graphitic carbon. Compound forms of phosphorus include phosphates and phosphides. Phosphorous was first recognized as an element by Hennig Brand in 1669 its name (phosphorus mirabilis, or "bearer of light") was inspired from the brilliant glow emitted by its distillation.

Tin Bohr ModelSee more Tin products. Tin (atomic symbol: Sn, atomic number: 50) is a Block P, Group 14, Period 5 element with an atomic weight of 118.710. The number of electrons in each of tin's shells is 2, 8, 18, 18, 4 and its electron configuration is [Kr] 4d10 5s2 5p2. The tin atom has a radius of 140.5 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 217 pm.In its elemental form, tin has a silvery-gray metallic appearance. It is malleable, ductile and highly crystalline. High Purity (99.9999%) Tin (Sn) MetalTin has nine stable isotopes and 18 unstable isotopes. Under 3.72 degrees Kelvin, Tin becomes a superconductor. Applications for tin include soldering, plating, and such alloys as pewter. The first uses of tin can be dated to the Bronze Age around 3000 BC in which tin and copper were combined to make the alloy bronze. The origin of the word tin comes from the Latin word Stannum which translates to the Anglo-Saxon word tin. For more information on tin, including properties, safety data, research, and American Elements' catalog of tin products, visit the Tin element page.

See more Zinc products. Zinc (atomic symbol: Zn, atomic number: 30) is a Block D, Group 12, Period 4 element with an atomic weight of 65.38. The number of electrons in each of zinc's shells is 2, 8, 18, 2, and its electron configuration is [Ar] 3d10 4s2. Zinc Bohr ModelThe zinc atom has a radius of 134 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 210 pm. Zinc was discovered by Indian metallurgists prior to 1000 BC and first recognized as a unique element by Rasaratna Samuccaya in 800. Zinc was first isolated by Andreas Marggraf in 1746. In its elemental form, zinc has a silver-gray appearance. It is brittle at ordinary temperatures but malleable at 100 °C to 150 °C.Elemental Zinc It is a fair conductor of electricity, and burns in air at high red producing white clouds of the oxide. Zinc is mined from sulfidic ore deposits. It is the 24th most abundant element in the earth's crust and the fourth most common metal in use (after iron, aluminum, and copper). The name zinc originates from the German word "zin," meaning tin.
