Benzene is a colorless, sweet-smelling chemical that can be derived from natural gas, crude oil, or coal. Benzene is a widely used industrial chemical. Benzene is found in crude oil and is a major part of gasoline. It’s used to make plastics, resins, synthetic fibers, rubber lubricants, dyes, detergents, drugs and pesticides.
