Fumigants is a chemical that produces gases used to disinfect or purify an area. It is used to kill nematodes, beetles, and other animals and plants that damage stored seeds or foods, clothing, human dwellings, and nursery stock. It is available in solid, liquid, as well as gaseous forms. Solid forms are available as pellets, powders etc. These are rehabilitated into gaseous state on being subjected to air or water. Fumigants with a high vapor pressure, for instance methyl bromide, hydrogen cyanide, ethylene oxide, and hydrogen phosphide, penetrate quickly and are used to treat closed storage areas or materials enclosed in gas-proof sheets. Additionally, low-pressure compounds for instance ethylene dichloride and ethylene dibromide are used to treat more open storing extents and as soil fumigants. In addition, common fumigants are used to treat nursery stand ardor stored products include hydrogen cyanide, nicotine,naphthalene, and methyl bromide.
