i think if you do manage to produce some P2O5 you will find it problematic to collect it. one time i was weighting out the powderous horror it reacted so vigorously with the water in the air that fumes of phosphoric acid travelled down the beaker and started reacting with the metal base on my scale leaving a circular mark on the metal, it clumped up and what not. tossed into a sugary solution on contact with the water the heat decomposed sugar directly into carbon

adding it to 62% nitric acid caused too much heat to control it even in small portions - then again the hell of it clumping up on contact with air, you dont wanna add this to anything containing water from start
im sure one day this chemical will find its way into one of my nightmares, brutal stuff to handle. i merely keep it stashed as a collection, it has however dehydrated the electrical tape i wrapped around the top of the container to keep it extra airtight, if you get to making P2O5 you will need some very intense dehydration measures just so that it doesnt spoil.

~25 drops = 1mL @dH2O viscocity - STP
Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.
