Nonmetallic Element
Phosphorus exists in three main allotropic (distinctly different) forms: white, red, and black. The element is important in plant and animal physiology and is a constituent of all animal bones, in the form of calcium phosphate. Phosphorus compounds are also used in fireproofing. White phosphorus is used in the making of bugrat poison, and red phosphorus is used in plasma ignition systems.
