Phosgene Production Cost Reports


Phosgene is an organic chemical compound with the formula COCl2. It is a colourless gas and its odour is similar to that of freshly chopped grasses or hays. Phosgene is a valued commerical building block, especially when it comes to the production of urethanes and polycarbonate plastics. 

Phosgene is a planar molecule as per the prediction by the VSEPR theory. It is known to be one of the simplest acyl chlorides, being formally derived from carbonic acid. Industrially, phosgene is manufactured by passing purified carbon monoxide and chlorine gas through a bed of porous activated carbon, that serves as a catalyst. Usually, the reaction is conducted at a temperature ranging between 50 and 150 °C.

Extreme measures are taken due to safety issues related to phosgene. Also, it is often produced and consumed within the same plant. Phosgene is still considered as a viable chemical warfare agent due to its ease of manufacturing, while compared to the manufacturing requirements of more technically advanced chemical weapons such as the first-generation nerve agent tabun.
