Chemical Ethylene Dibromide

Name Ethylene Dibromide
CAS Type 1 Name Ethane, 1,2-dibromo-
Equivalent Terms 1,2 Dibromoethane | 1,2-Dibromoethane | Bromide, Ethylene | Dibromide, Ethylene | Dibromides, Ethylene | Dowfume W85 | Dowfume W 85 | Ethylene Bromide | Ethylene Dibromides | sym Dibromoethane | sym-Dibromoethane
CAS Registry Number 106-93-4
Definition An effective soil fumigant, insecticide, and nematocide. In humans, it causes severe burning of skin and irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract. Prolonged inhalation may cause liver necrosis. It is also used in gasoline. Members of this group have caused liver and lung cancers in rodents.
