After a little trial-and-error experimentation proved the destructiveness of chlorine, ethylene dibromide (EDB), a byproduct of bromine invented by Dow Chemical in the twenties, was selected as the scavenger of choice.
Discounting methyl bromide and ethylene dibromide, whose use is being regulated out of existence, brominated hydrocarbons will enjoy above-average growth as TBBA increases its share of the flame retardants market and compounds such as n-propyl bromide find growing use in such diverse applications as solvents, adhesives and electronics cleaning, often as a replacement for more environmentally suspect substances.
From it, we learn that the potential saving of a single life by means of OSHA's current formaldehyde-exposure standard is $72 billion, by means of the same agency's ethylene dibromide standard a mere $15.
