Dithiocarbamates (Pesticide)
Light colored solid; [ICSC]
A fungicide that was used on fruits and vegetables; [EXTOXNET] Also formerly used as fungicide for paints, fabrics, leather, paper, plastics, surfaces already painted and those to be painted, and wood surfaces; [HSDB]
The EBCDCs (ethylenebisdithiocarbamates) can cause irritant and allergic contact dermatitis. EBDCs include ferbam, vapam, maneb, mancozeb, zineb, thiram, and ziram. They are also used as rubber accelerators. Ethylene thiourea (ETU), which may contaminate EBCDCs, is carcinogenic and teratogenic in animal experiments. [LaDou, p. 610] ETU is the major metabolite of EBDCs. [Krieger, p. 1690] A skin, eye, and respiratory tract irritant; May cause skin sensitization; Prolonged or repeated exposure may have effects on the blood, CNS, and liver; [ICSC] See the agent, "Ethylene thiourea."
