[Chemical Properties]

Ethylene dibromide is a heavy, colorless liquid with a mild sweet odor, like chloroform. It is also known as 1,2-dibromomethane. Ethylene dibromide is soluble in alcohols, ethers, acetone, benzene, and most organic solvents, and slightly soluble in water. Ethylene dibromide was once of dominant use, although its use has faded as an additive in leaded gasoline. Ethylene dibromide (1,2-dibromoethane) reacts with lead residues to generate volatile lead bromides. It has been used as a pesticide in soil and various crops. Exposure to ethylene dibromide primarily occurs from its past use as an additive to leaded gasoline and as a fumigant. Most of the uses of ethylene dibromide have been stopped in the United States for the control of moths and beehives, and as a preparation for dyes and waxes. Ethylene dibromide was used as a fumigant to protect against insects, pests, and nematodes in citrus, vegetable, and grain crops, and as a fumigant for turf, particularly on golf courses. In 1984, the US EPA banned its use as a soil and grain fumiga
[General Description]

A clear colorless liquid with a sweetish odor. Density 18.1 lb /gal. Slightly soluble in water. Soluble in most organic solvents and thinners. Noncombustible. Very toxic by inhalation, skin absorption or ingestion. Used as a solvent, scavenger for lead in gasoline, grain fumigant and in the manufacture of other chemicals.
[Reactivity Profile]

ETHYLENE DIBROMIDE(106-93-4) slowly decomposes in the presence of light and heat. Turns brown upon exposure to light. Corrosive to iron and other metals. May decompose upon contact with alkalis. Incompatible with oxidizing agents. Reacts with sodium, potassium, calcium, powdered aluminum, zinc, magnesium and liquid ammonia. May attack some plastics, rubber and coatings. May poison platinum catalysts [Hawley]. Reacts as an alkylating agent .
[Air & Water Reactions]

Slightly soluble in water. May react slowly with moisture.
[Hazard]

Probable carcinogen. Toxic by inhalation, ingestion, and skin absorption; strong irritant to eyes and skin.
[Health Hazard]

Exposures to ethylene dibromide cause adverse health effects and poisoning. Ethylene dibromide is extremely toxic to humans. Long-term exposures of ethylene dibromide to laboratory animals cause deleterious effects to the liver, kidney, and the testis, irrespective of the route of exposure. Limited data on men occupationally exposed to ethylene dibromide indicate that long-term exposure to ethylene dibromide can impair reproduction by damaging sperm cells in the testicles. Several animal studies indicate that long-term exposure to ethylene dibromide increases the incidences of a variety of tumors in rats and mice in both sexes by all routes of exposure. The symptoms of toxicity include, but are not limited to, redness, infl ammation, skin blisters, and ulcers on accidental swallowing/ingestion. Ethylene dibromide has also been reported to cause birth defects in exposed humans.
[Health Hazard]

Local inflammation, blisters and ulcers on skin; irritation in lungs and organic injury to liver and kidneys; may be absorbed through skin.
[Potential Exposure]

Ethylene dibromide is used as a chemical intermediate; as a fumigant for ground pest control; as a constituent of ethyl gasoline (anti-knock agent). It is also used in fire extinguishers, gauge fluids, and waterproofing preparations; and it is used as a solvent for celluloid, fats, oils, and waxes. Pesticide not in use; TRI and/or IUR indicates importers or manufacturers are unlikely
[First aid]

Move victim to fresh air. Call 911 or emergency medical service. Give artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; give artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 20 minutes. For minor skin contact, avoid spreading material on unaffected skin. Keep victim warm and quiet. Effects of exposure (inhalation, ingestion or skin contact) to substance may be delayed. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves. Medical observation is recommended for 24 to 48 hours after breathing overexposure, as pulmonary edema may be delayed. As first aid for pulmonary edema, a doctor or authorized paramedic may consider administering a drug or other inhalation therapy.
