About Benzene:

In appearance, Benzene is a clear, colourless, highly flammable and volatile, liquid aromatic hydrocarbon with a gasoline-like odour Benzene is found in crude oils and as a by-product of oil-refining methods. In industries, benzene is utilised as a solvent, as a chemical intermediate, and is used in the synthesis of numerous chemicals.

Chemical Formula of Benzene:

  • C6H6  

Synonyms:

  • 71-43-2
  • Benzol
  • Cyclohexatriene
  • Benzole

Molecular Weight

  • 78.11 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Plastics
  • Resins
  • Synthetic fibres
  • Rubber lubricants
  • Dyes
  • Detergents
  • Drugs and pesticides

Production Processes:     

  • Production of Benzene via Catalytic Reforming; and via Toluene Hydrodealkylation.

While producing Benzene using the reformation process, hydrocarbons are boiled with hydrogen gas at very high temperature (somewhere between 60 to 200-degree celsius), which forms hydrocarbon rings and aromatic compounds. The reaction takes place in the presence of a catalyst. These aromatic products are then separated by extraction with the help of solvents, thus, obtaining the desired products. 

Procurement Resource also provides the production cost analysis of Benzene.
