Formation of 2-chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS riot control agent) thermal degradation products at elevated temperatures.
2-Chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS riot control agent) has been shown to produce a number of thermal degradation products when dispersed at high temperature. We hypothesized that these CS-derivedExpand

Identification of CS‐derived compounds formed during heat‐dispersion of CS riot control agent*†
High temperatures are frequently used to disperse 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS) riot control agent. We examined airborne CS degradation products heat-dispersed together with CS fromExpand
