Understanding Benzene: A chemical to be treated with care

What is benzene?

Benzene is a colourless, flammable liquid with a distinctive aromatic odour that evaporates quickly when exposed to air. It is found in crude oils and released during some natural processes, such as volcanic eruptions and forest fires, but most exposure to benzene results from human activity. As it is heavier than air, it can collect in dangerous concentrations near to the ground.
