Abstract : This report is part three in a three part series dedicated to observing the degradation of organophoras compound-exposure to atmospheric moisture as a function of time. The investigation continues with Phosphines, Phosphites, Phosphonites, Phosphinites, Phosphoric Acids, Phosphonic Acids, Phosphinic Acids, Phosphine Oxides, Phosphoric Halides, Phosphonates, Phosphinic Halides, Phosphinates, Phosphates, P-N Compounds, P=S (Thiono) Compounds, P-S (Thiolo) Compounds, P=Se Compounds, P-O-P (Pyro) Compounds, other P-Compounds, and Inorganic Compounds. Experimental observation of chemical degradation is interpreted from the measured infrared over the 4000 to 400 wavenumber region. Infrared band assignments are reported and newly formed compounds are identified. The final fate of the compound from starting material is reported. Infrared stack plots are provided illustrating the chemical changes as a function of time.
