    Zineb is a foliate fungicide and is a polymeric complex of zinc with the ethylene bis anionic ligand. Its uses include control of downy mildews, rusts and redfire disease. It is produced by reacting ethylene bis sodium salt, nabam, with zinc sulfate. This can be carried out by mixing nabam and zinc sulfate in the spray tank. In the US it was once registered as a "General Use Pesticide", however all registrations were voluntarily cancelled following an EPA special review. It continues to be used in many other countries. Ethylene bis with Manganese instead of Zinc, called Maneb, was included in a biocide ban proposed by the Swedish Chemicals Agency and approved by the European Parliament on January 13, 2009.
