Other chemicals were found as well:
chlorodiphenyl (which can cause liver damage and irritate the eyes and
skin), chloroacetophenone (tear gas), phosgene (a colorless gas that can
cause weakness lasting weeks or months), hydrogen cyanide (a colorless
gas with a slight almond-like odor that at low-level exposures can cause
breathing difficulties, heart pains, vomiting, and headache), and
trichloroarsine (which affects respiration and can cause cancer).
Phenacyl chloride is a substituted acetophenone. It is a useful building
block in organic chemistry. Apart from that, it has been historically
used as a riot control agent, where it is designated CN.
Phenacyl chloride is readily available commercially. It may be
synthesized by the Friedel-Crafts acylation of benzene using
chloroacetyl chloride, with an aluminium chloride catalyst
* 3-Chloroacetophenone is primarily used as a riot-control agent (tear
gas) and in Chemical Mace. (1-3,7)
* It is also used as a pharmaceutical intermediate and formerly as an
Sources and Potential Exposure
* The use of tear gas and Chemical Mace to control riots and disable
attackers causes direct exposure to 3-Chloroacetophenone through skin
contact and inhalation.
Occupational exposure may occur during its manufacture and use by
inhalation and dermal contact.
Assessing Personal Exposure
* No information was located regarding the measurement of personal
exposure to 3-Chloroacetophenone.
Health Hazard Information
* 3-Chloroacetophenone is a potent eye, throat, and skin irritant. Acute
inhalation exposure of humans causes burning of the eyes with
lacrimation; some degree of blurred vision; possible corneal damage;
irritation and burning of the nose, throat, and skin; burning in the
chest with dyspnea; and laryngotracheobronchitis
Acute dermal exposure is irritating and can result in first, second, and
third degree chemical burns in humans; these effects are exacerbated
when the skin is wet. Acute animal tests in rats, mice, rabbits, and
guinea pigs have demonstrated 3-Chloroacetophenone to have high acute
toxicity from oral exposure.
These API/ chemicals are designated as
