Benzene. Computer graphic of two entangled benzene molecules. The carbon atoms are represented by larger spheres, the hydrogen atoms by smaller spheres. Benzene has the chemical formula C6H6. Benzene is a thin, colourless liquid with a characteristic smell. It is highly inflammable and long-term exposure to it is thought to cause cancer. Benzene is obtained commercially from components (fractions) of petroleum using catalytic reforming. It is used to manufacture other chemicals and as a solvent for most simple organic chemicals.
