The comparative acute toxicity of two peripheral sensory irritant materials, 1-chloroacetophenone (CN) and 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS), has been investigated in several species of small mammal using solutions in polyethylene glycol 300 for intravenous, intraperitoneal and oral administration, and as pure aerosols for inhalation exposure. Additionally, the comparative potency for inducing primary contact dermatitis was studied. CN and CS were found to be about equitoxic by intravenous… Expand

TLDR
2,6-dichloroBMN will be the most reactive compound with proteins and therefore the best haptene in comparison with the related chloroBMNs and will beThe most stable compound in the presence of water. Expand
A repeated dose study of the toxicity of inhaled 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS) aerosol in three species of laboratory animal
TLDR
The repeated dose inhalation toxicity of 2-chlorobenzylidene maloninitrile was investigated in male mice, rats, and guinea-pigs and no case of a dose-response relationship between tumours in a particular site, and total dose of CS was noted. Expand
Tierexperimentelle Untersuchungen zum Nachweis einer Anwendung der „chemischen Keule“
TLDR
In vitro experiments showed that CN relatively quickly reacts with components of blood, and blood samples should be analyzed for CN after withdrawal as soon as possible, in case of inhalation of the contents of chemical mace. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that CS will not create a risk for the induction of point mutations or of carcinogenic processes mediated by DNA binding, and taking into account the rare and low exposure of man. Expand
Impairment of testis in rats after exposure to orthochlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS): An experimental study
The acute toxic effects of orthochlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS) on the rat testis were analyzed in terms of body weight, serum testosterone and histopathology of testis. The animal experimentsExpand
Comparative safety evaluation of riot control agents of synthetic and natural origin

The Pharmacotherapy of Blood Intoxication (Methmoglobinemia) Induce by Exposure to Ortho-Chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS) in Public Protests
TLDR
Methylene blue is the specific antidote, but should be reserved for more severe cases or if co-morbid conditions make mild hypoxia un advisable, as well as when cyanosis, unresponsive to 100% oxygen therapy, appears suddenly. Expand

Formation of cyanide from o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile and its toxicological significance
TLDR
Mice received o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile by i.p. injection or by aerosol exposure verified a rapid transformation of the agent to cyanide in vivo, and a correlation between the time course of cyanide levels and symptoms was observed. Expand
The comparative ophthalmic toxicology of 1-chloroaceto-phenone (CN) and dibenz(b.f)-1:4-oxazepine (CR)
TLDR
Rabbit eyes were contaminated with 1-chloroacetophenone (CN) and dibenz(b.f)-1∶4-oxazepine (CR) in solution, as a solid, and as aerosols, with marked and persistent inflammatory effects, the severity and duration being related to the concentration used. Expand
Mechanism of Toxicity of Injected CS Gas
TLDR
A brief investigation into the mechanism of toxicity of CS is described, because elevated levels of thiocyanate have been found in the blood of human patients treated with 4-nitrobenzylidene malononitrile39, and because malon onitrile is one of the products when CS is hydrolysed in aqueous ethanol9, the toxicities of cyanide and malonOnitrile have also received attention. Expand
The ophthalmic toxicology of o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS)
TLDR
Rabbit eyes were contaminated with the riot control agent o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile in solution, as a solid, and as a pyrotechnically generated smoke by all the methods of contamination, the severity and duration of which increased with the amount of material applied. Expand
Inhalation Toxicology and Pathology of Animals Exposed to o-Chlorobenzylidene Malononitrile (CS)
TLDR
C S is a potent sternutator and lachrymator with a higher ratio between the lethal and irritating airborne concentrations in animals than any previously known agent of this type. Expand
The absorption of ortho-chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS) by the respiratory tract.

  • Toxicology and applied pharmacology
  • 1973
TLDR
The mechanisms by which CS, CSH2 and oCB are absorbed from the respiratory tract have different thresholds and different saturating concentrations of CS aerosol, and it is concluded that all 3 compounds are absorbed per se from the lungs, although CS is subsequently converted to CSH 2 and o CB in the body.

In studies in rats, chloroacetophenone (CN) and o-chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS) produced severe gastroenteritis, with deaths generally occuring within two days after a single dose, LaboratoryExpand
Ortho-chlorobenzylmalononitrile: a metabolite formed from ortho-chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS).
TLDR
Evidence is presented which suggests that the reduction of CS to CSH2 in blood is catalyzed by an enzyme in the erythrocyte cytoplasm and that NADPH is a specific coenzyme. Expand

TLDR
The cutaneous reactions produced are worse when the irritant is moistened, and ω‐Chloroacetophenone has been shown to present a far greater cutaneous hazard than o‐chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile when applied directly to the skin. Expand
