Benzene
Sampling & Analysis

Benzene comes in the form of a colorless-to-light-yellow liquid with an aromatic odor. It is a by-product of the oil refining industry and is used as a solvent, as a chemical intermediate, and is used in the synthesis of many other chemicals.  

The substance enters the body through inhalation, ingestion, skin absorption, or skin/eye contact.  It irritates the eyes, nose, skin, and respiratory system; it can also cause dizziness, headache, nausea, weakness, staggered gait, and anorexia.  Benzene can also cause dermatitis and bone marrow depression.
