Join our webinar on Friday 1st May at 10am

Benzene is a highly flammable liquid, which occurs naturally in crude oil, natural gas and some ground waters. It is also present in crude oil vapours. The main use of benzene is as starting material for manufacturing chemicals such as cyclohexane, ethyl benzene (styrene), phenol and maleic anhydride. It was formerly used as a solvent, but in most cases, safer substances have now replaced this use.  In the UK, petrol contains below 1% benzene. Small amounts of benzene are produced when some organic substances burn incompletely, e.g. it is found in cigarette smoke and vehicle exhausts. It is produced as a by-product during the manufacture of coke from coal.  Benzene evaporates easily, and most people can just detect its distinctive smell at concentrations between 2.5 and 5 parts per million (ppm) in air.
