BTEX - "BTEX is the term used for benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene-volatile aromatic compounds typically found in petroleum product, such as gasoline and diesel fuel." - Environmental Protection Agency, 2010 BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene) - "Volatile, monocyclic aromatic compounds present in coal tar, petroleum products, and various organic chemical product formulations (Cohen and Mercer, 1993). These are the most soluble of the major gasoline compounds and, therefore, are common indicators of gasoline contamination." - Wilson and Moore, 1998 BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene) - "BTEX is a group of chemicals which is quantified by one analytical method...Toluene, ethylbenzene, and the three isomers of xylene are colourless liquids, immiscible with water but miscible with organic solvents. They have a characteristic strong odour and are highly flammable." - European Environment Agency, 2010
