Ethylene dibromide (EDB) is a heavy, colourless liquid with a mild, sweet odour that readily volatilises to form toxic vapour concentrations in air. It was used in Australia mainly as an agricultural soil fumigant. Other names for EDB include 1,2-dibromoethane, ethylene bromide, and glycol dibromide.
