Abstract : The rates of dissolution of indium phosphide in certain acids at various temperatures were determined. Etching agents are proposed for chemical polishing, finding dislocation pits, and also for detecting single-crystal nature of ingots of indium phosphide without using microstructural investigations. During abrasive treatment of indium phosphide using water, it is found that the source of liberation of phosphine is not only the hydrolysis reaction, but also includes processes leading to the reaction of InP with the products of its oxidation at points of local heating.
