AlP crystals are dark grey to dark yellow in color and have a zincblende crystal structure[2] with a lattice constant of 5.4510 Å at 300 K.[3] They are thermodynamically stable up to 1,000 °C (1,830 °F).[4]

Aluminium phosphide reacts with water or acids to release phosphine:[5]

AlP is synthesized by combination of the elements:[4][6]

Caution must be taken to avoid exposing the AlP to any sources of moisture, as this generates toxic phosphine gas.

AlP is used as a rodenticide, insecticide, and fumigant for stored cereal grains. It is used to kill small verminous mammals such as moles and rodents. The tablets or pellets, known as “wheat pills”, typically also contain other chemicals that evolve ammonia which helps to reduce the potential for spontaneous ignition or explosion of the phosphine gas.
