Tear gas, formally known as a lachrymatory agent or lachrymator (from lacrima meaning "a tear" in Latin), is a non-lethal chemical compound 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. Fonte: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tear_gas

Segundo o Nelly também podemos falar Mace:

Runnin' all the time might get you somethin' hot in your face
And I ain't talkin' 'bout no mace
I'm talkin' that sh*t that chase
That sh*t that'll bring you down and take forensic files gonna solve that case
