Benzene, benzol or Cyclohexatriene, is an organic chemical compound with the molecular formula C6H6. It is sometimes abbreviated Ph–H.

Benzene is a colorless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell and a relatively high melting point. Because it is a known carcinogen, its use as an 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, and may be synthesized from other compounds present in petroleum. Benzene is an aromatic hydrocarbon and the second [n]-annulene ([6]-annulene), a cyclic hydrocarbon with a continuous pi bond.

Benzene can be detected in either ppm of percentage range. Airmet can assist you in finding the correct benzene detector for your application. Simply use the product selector below or give us a call.
