Phosgene is the chemical compoond wi the formula COCl2. This colourless gas gained infamy as a chemical wappen during Warld War I whaur it wis responsible for aboot 85% o the 100,000 daiths caused bi chemical wappens. It is an aa a valued industrial reagent an biggin block in synthesis o pharmaceuticals an ither organic compoonds. In law concentrations, its odour resembles freshly cut hey or gress.[6] In addition tae its industrial production, small amounts occur frae the breakdoun an the combustion o organochlorine compoonds, sic as thae uised in refrigeration seestems.[7] The chemical wis named bi combinin the Greek wirds "phos" (meanin licht) an "genesis" (birth); it disna mean it conteens ony phosphorus (cf. phosphine).
