    Abstract

    This laboratory recently received two submissions on unrelated matters, each containing a tear gas canister. The offenses were aggravated assault and aggravated robbery. Our effort to identify conclusively the chemical composition was delayed because we had little prior experience with the compounds and we found relatively little published material that dealt with the specific problems of separation of the primary constituent from the typical carriers [1,2].
