Petroleum products are derived from the refining of crude oil in oil refineries and are different from petrochemicals, which are pure organic compounds. These products are complex mixtures and the majority of petroleum is converted into different types of fuels. In the oil refinery industry, a wide range of chemical compounds are used to remove impurities from crude oil, such as water and tar. Among these chemicals, Naphtha is the most commonly used. Naphtha is obtained from crude oil after undergoing treatment with other compounds like kerosene and butane. Various methods, including steam distillation, vacuum distillation, and the use of solvents like acetone or hexane, can be employed to extract Naphtha from crude oil.

The petroleum industry, known as Oil & Gas Industries, includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transportation, and marketing of petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline. Petroleum industry requires highly pure chemicals, Reagents such as Toluene, Trichloroethylene, Ethanol, Heptane, n-Pentane, n-Decane, Methanol, Hydrogen Peroxide, chloroform, Glassware, plasticware, Filtration products are required in routine work for the analysis.
