  • Ethylene dibromide (EDB) is a pesticide fumigant used for protecting standing crops and preserving stored grains in some countries.

  • Ethylene dibromide is a colorless liquid that is heavier than water. It has a characteristic chloroform-like odor.

  • Ethylene dibromide is used as an antiknock additive in gasoline.

  • Ethylene dibromide was used to kill fruit flies on citrus fruits and in the soil to protect grasses in environments such as golf courses.

  • It is used sparingly today as a [fumigant] to kill termites and cockroach.

  • Ethylene Dibromide is a DOT Poison Inhalation Hazard (PIH).

  • Ethylene dibromide is a severe mucous membrane, eye, and skin irritant. It is a liver, kidney, and lung toxin, and a reproductive toxin in
    experimental animals. Ethylene dibromide has been determined to be carcinogenic by the inhalation, ingestion, and dermal routes of exposure

  • Ethylene dibromide is toxic through inhalation, dermal exposure, ingestion or ocular absorption. It is metabolized both by cytochrome P450 and GST enzymes.

  • The fastest degradation of EDB occurs at or near the soil surface. EDB is moderately persistent in the soil environment; a representative field half-life was estimated to be 100 days.

  • EDB was removed from use as a soil fumigant in the United States in 1983.It is still used in other applications.

  • The cases of ethylene dibromide poisoning are observed for the last 5 years in the state of Madhya Pradesh especially in Bhopal region. The trend however found in increasing order.

  • Groundwater contamination of EDB has been confirmed at levels up to 0.3 mg/L. Usual levels of EDB found in groundwater were approximately  0.001 to 0.02 mg/L, which are similar to levels found in stored grain products.
