1,2-Dibromoethane also known as Ethylene Dibromide (EDBr) is an organobromine compound. It has been used as a pesticide in soil and on various crops. It is used as a fumigant for treatment of logs for termites and beetles, for control of moths in beehives. 1,2-Dibromoethane has wider applications in the preparation of other organic compounds including those carrying modified diazocine rings and vinyl bromide that is a precursor to some fire retardants.
