Part Descriptions

LP16804-4   Benzene
Benzene, also known as benzol, is an organic chemical compound with the formula C 6 H 6. It is sometimes abbreviated Ph H. Benzene is a colorless and flammable liquid with a sweet smell and a relatively high melting point. It is carcinogenic and its use as additive in gasoline is now limited, but it is an important industrial solvent and precursor in the production of drugs, plastics, synthetic rubber, and dyes. Benzene is a natural constituent of crude oil, but it is usually synthesized from other compounds present in petroleum. Benzene is an aromatic hydrocarbon and the second [ n ]-annulene (-annulene).
