Benzene (a.k.a. Benzol) is an organic compound, in the aromatic hydrocarbon class. More specifically, it is the simplest of these compounds, comprising of one single aromatic ring. Benzene is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic compounds. It is hardly found in its free form in nature, appearing only as traces in crude oil and coal. It was first isolated in 1825, with production starting in 1849 and growing rapidly in the 1950s, with the rising demand for polymers. Benzene is an extremely important chemical compound, being used as a versatile building block for a great variety of organic compounds, primarily aromatic ones.
