Analytes - 1,2-dibromoethane

1,2-dibromoethane: CAS No. 106-93-4, C2H4Br2, molecular weight 187.86, boiling point 131.5°C, density 2.18gm/mL, vapor pressure 11mm Hg at 25°C, flash point none, slightly soluble in water is a clear colorless to faint yellow liquid formerly used as a soil fumigant in agriculture and a lead scavenger in leaded gasoline, but whose use is now severely restricted. It is most frequently measured in water, air and soil to comply with environmental regulations. Due to its volatility, it is most often measured using GC/ECD, ELCD and GC/MS methods specified by regulatory agencies like the U.S. EPA.
