Background Military, correctional officer, and law enforcement personnel, are routinely exposed to 2-chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile CS during combat training, chemical protective mask confidence training, and riot control operations training. The public may be involuntarily exposed during rioting or civil disturbances. The potential exists for CS to form new compounds when dispersed by means of oxidizer-supported combustion of a chemical fuel from inside a canister.
