difference between white and red phosphorus

White Phosphorous is made up of tetrahedral groups of phosphorous (P4).

Red Phosphorous looks similar to White Phosphorous, except it is made up of two tetrahedral groups of phosphorous, attached by one side. It is more stable than the white allotrope, which will slowly turn into red phosphorous, after being heated or in the presence of light.
