Abstract Ethylene dibromide has recently been reported by the National Cancer Institute to be a potential carcinogen. Its commercial use is predominately as a scavenging agent for lead in gasoline. A minor usage is a pesticide fumigant. A protocol was developed for the sampling and analysis of ethylene dibromide in ambient air and surface water. The range in concentration of ethylene dibromide in the air and the site where it was collected are as follows: manufacturing sites, 4.2 to 115 micrograms per cu m oil refinery, 0.23-1.65 micrograms per cu m; urban locations near retail gasoline stations and with heavy vehicular traffic, 0.069 to 0.11 micrograms per cu m. Two water samples collected from streams near an oil refinery and a manufacturing site were found to contain 1.13 and 1.05 parts per billion ethylene dibromide, respectively. Further work to clarify ambient air levels and to assess whether they may represent a health risk is anticipated, but the very low levels detected to date are not thought to present a significant risk to health.
