For commercial use, until World War IImost benzene was obtained as a by-product of coke production or “coke-oven light oil” for the steel industry. Wikimedia Commons has media related to: Benzene is a natural constituent of crude oil and is one of the elementary petrochemicals.

Liebigs Annalen der Chemie und Pharmacie. The most important variations contain nitrogen. Michigan State UniversityDepartment of Chemistry. Linking benzene rings gives biphenylC 6 H 5 —C 6 H 5. As benzene can cause cancer, NIOSH recommends that all workers wear special breathing equipment when they are likely to be exposed to benzene at levels exceeding the REL hour of 0.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, benzene was used as an after-shave lotion because of its pleasant smell. InLudwig Roselius popularized the use of benzene to decaffeinate coffee.

On pages —, he shows that benzene’s empirical formula is C 6 H 6although he doesn’t realize it because he like most chemists at that time used the wrong atomic mass for carbon 6 instead of Inhaled benzene is primarily expelled unchanged through exhalation.

Recovery of the aromatics, commonly referred to as BTX benzene, toluene and xylene isomersinvolves such extraction and distillation steps. National Institutes of Health.

Coal benzene

In some current catalytic systems, even the benzene-to-xylenes ratio is decreased more xylenes when the demand of xylenes is higher.

Solubility in diethylene glycol.

Archived from the original on The word “benzene” derives from “gum bebceno benzoin resinan aromatic resin known to European pharmacists and perfumers since the 15th century as a product of southeast Asia. Most of these metabolites have some value as biomarkers of human exposure, since they accumulate in the urine in proportion to the extent and duration of exposure, and they may still be present for some days after exposure has ceased.


As benzene can cause cancerNIOSH recommends that all workers wear special breathing equipment when they are likely to be exposed to benzene at levels exceeding the recommended 8-hour exposure limit of 0. Bencenno example, mutations in CYP2E1 increase activity and result in increased generation of toxic metabolites. In a footnote on page 43, Liebig, the journal’s editor, suggested changing Mitscherlich’s original name for benzene namely, “benzin” to “benzol”, because the suffix “-in” suggested that it was an alkaloid e.

The aromatic products of the reaction are then separated from the reaction mixture or reformate by extraction with any one of a number of solventsincluding diethylene beneno or sulfolaneand benzene is then separated from the other aromatics by distillation. Benzene is a colorless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell, and is responsible for the aroma around petrol gas stations.

A history of the determination of benzene’s structure is recounted in: To accurately reflect the nature of the bonding, benzene is often depicted with a circle inside a hexagonal msdds of carbon atoms. Four chemical processes contribute to industrial benzene production: Glutathione seems to play an important role by protecting against benzene-induced DNA breaks and it is being identified as a new biomarker for exposure and effect.

GSH is involved with the formation of phenylmercapturic acid. He said that he had discovered the ring shape of the benzene molecule after having a reverie or day-dream of a snake seizing its own tail this is a common symbol in many ancient cultures known as the Ouroboros or Endless knot.

The most widely practiced example of this reaction is the ethylation of benzene.

The empirical formulas of organic compounds that appear in Hofmann’s article p. Annulenes Annulynes Alicyclic compounds Petroleum jelly. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry ATSDRbenzene is both an anthropogenically produced and naturally occurring chemical from processes that include: Correlation between biomarkers of exposure and genotoxic effects”.


Long-term exposure to excessive levels msfs benzene in the air causes leukemiaa potentially fatal cancer of the blood-forming organs. The maximum contaminant level goal MCLGa nonenforceable health goal that would allow an adequate margin of safety for the prevention of adverse effects, is zero benzene concentration in drinking water. The msdds of the two are similar, msxs toluene is less toxic and has a wider liquid benxeno.

Kayode; Ludwig, Ernest E. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. These intermediates bencceno metabolites induce genotoxicity by multiple mechanisms including inhibition of topoisomerase II which maintains chromosome structuredisruption of microtubules which maintains cellular structure and organizationgeneration of oxygen free radicals unstable species that may lead to point mutations, increasing oxidative stress, inducing DNA strand breaks, and altering DNA methylation which can affect gene expression.

Where a chemical complex has similar demands for both benzene and xylenethen toluene disproportionation TDP may be an attractive alternative to the toluene hydrodealkylation.

Benzene has 6 hydrogen atoms — fewer than the corresponding parent alkanehexane. As the carbon atoms in the benzene ring collided with each other, each carbon atom would collide twice with one neighbor during a given interval msdss then twice with its other neighbor during the next interval.

Benzene – Wikipedia

Toluene is now often used as a substitute for benzene, for instance as a fuel additive. The molecule is planar. As a gasoline petrol additive, benzene increases the octane rating and reduces knocking. Trace amounts of benzene are found in petroleum and coal.
