How Does Tear Gas Work?

Let’s explore the three kinds:

  • CN (chloroacetophenone)
  • CS (chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile)
  • OC / Pepper spray (oleoresin capsicum)– made from chilli peppers mixed with a vehicle like corn oil

Tear gas in the form of CN or CS, is often used by law enforcement when they are faced with a combative crowd. Both CN and CS are irritants, they irritate mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, mouth, and lungs and cause tearing, sneezing and coughing. Pepper spray is an inflammatory agent that causes inflammation in the eyes, nose, and mouth.
Because tear gas is launched in the form of grenades or aerosol cans making the liquid an aerosol, it’s clean up requires specific technical steps be taken in order to effectively remediate the residue and air space left behind after its discharge.
