Keywords: Irritants, Gases
AbstractThe article presents a historical background on the use of tear gases in war and civilian riot control activity. The classification of chemical compounds used as irritants, and their structure - activity relationship established through different studies has been examined. A review of toxic effects which is different from irritancy of Adamsite, w- chloroacetophenone (CN), o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS) and Dibenz (b,f), [1, 4] - oxazepine (CR) has been presented.
