A mixture of highly sticky, black, and viscous organic liquids that is entirely soluble in carbon disulfide and primarily composed of highly condensed polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons is called bitumen. Naturally occurring bitumen is a tar-lie form of petroleum which is so dense, heavy, and thick that it must be heated or diluted before it could flow. Bitumen mostly contains sulfur and various heavy metals such as vanadium, lead, nickel, chromium, mercury, and other toxic elements.
