Ethylene dichloride is a heavy, oily, liquid which burns with a smoky flame. Usually it is colorless but it will darken in the presence of air, moisture, and light. It has a pleasant chloroform-like odor and irritating vapors. Ethylene dichloride is slightly soluble in water and miscible with alcohol, chloroform, and ether (Merck, 1989). When in heated water, ethylene dichloride will corrode iron and other metals (HSDB, 1995).
