1,2-Dibromoethane is a widely used and sometimes-controversial fumigant. The once-dominant use, although one that has faded, is as an additive in leaded gasoline. It has been used as a pesticide in soil and on various crops. It is used in organic synthesis as a source of bromine. Historically, 1,2-dibromoethane was used as an anti-knock additive in leaded fuels.
