it is a natural constituent of crude oil, it is an aromatic hydrocarbon, having cyclic hydrocarbon with a continuous pi bond. It is abbreviated as Ph–H. Benzene is a colourless and a highly flammable liquid having a sweet smell. It is mostly used as a precursor to heavy chemicals, like ethylbenzene & cumene, which produced on a billion kilogram scale. Because of  having a high octane number, it is an important component of gasoline, containing a few percent of its mass. Most of its non-industrial applications have been limited because of benzene's carcinogenicity.
