Description

Acetylphenylhydrazine (APH) is an organic compound used as a reagent in organic synthesis. It is a colorless, crystalline solid with a strong odor. APH is toxic and can cause severe irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract. It is also a strong oxidizing agent and can cause burns and explosions if mishandled.

The toxic effects of APH include irritation of the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract, as well as nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Long-term exposure to APH can cause liver and kidney damage, as well as anemia and other blood disorders.
