A clear colorless liquid, H3PO4, used in fertilizers, detergents, food flavoring, and pharmaceuticals.


Phosphoric acid: orthophosphoric acid: 1.  A colourless solid tribasic acid, (any water soluble acid), used in the manufacture of fertilizers and soap.  Systematic name phosphoric(V) acid Also called orthophosphoric acid 2. Any oxyacid, (see Oxyanion) (an acid that contains an oxygen atom bonded to a hydrogen atom and at least one other element),  of phosphorus produced by reaction between phosphorus pentoxide and water.


The information I'm getting on phosphorus pentoxide is that it's an unsafe chemical, per osha.
