The chemical compound 1,2-dichloroethane, commonly known by its old name of ethylene dichloride (EDC), is a chlorinated hydrocarbon, mainly used to produce vinyl chloride monomer (VCM, chloroethene), the major precursor for PVC production.

It is a colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Ethylene dichloride is also used generally as an intermediate for other organic chemical compounds, and as a solvent. Ethylene dichloride is produced through the iron(III) chloride catalyzed reaction of ethene (ethylene) and chlorine.
