Tear gas used by the Oakland police against protesters at Occupy Oakland, California (From NYTIMES)


Tear gas, formally known as a lachrymatory agent or lachrymator (from lacrima meaning “a tear” in Latin), is a non-lethal chemical weapon that stimulates the corneal nerves in the eyes to cause tearing, pain, and even blindness. Common lachrymators include OC, CS, CR, CN, nonivamide, bromoacetone, phenacyl bromide, xylyl bromide and syn-propanethial-S-oxide (from onions). Lacrymators often share the structural element Z=C-C-X, where Z indicates carbon or oxygen, and X indicates bromide or chloride.

Antidote

Because tear gas is not actually a gas but a very fine acid powder, its effectiveness can be easily mitigated by any over the counter anti acid drug commonly available at drugstores or pharmacy without prescription, like Sodium bicarbonate, Maalox or Alka-Seltzer to name a few.[1][2]

Other use

Although lachrymatory agents are commonly used as riot control weapons, the most common use of some is in laboratory synthesis, where their lachrymatory properties are an undesirable side effect. Common examples include benzyl chloride, thionyl chloride, and acetic anhydride
