Nomenclature[edit]

I hope the old name "ethylene dichloride" is phased out soon, as it implies a double bond where there isn't one (compare to ethylene). 1,2-dichloroethane is definitely less misleading. Eddietoran (talk) 02:57, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Safety[edit]

While the chemical is banned from use by U.S. manufacturers

The chemical may be banned from use as an additive, but it is certainly not banned from use by manufacturers in the US as an intermediate or as a raw material. Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of ethylene dichloride are consumed in the US every year for the manufacture of PVC. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.225.149.5 (talk) 14:56, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
