3 m3 = Cubic meter (Approximately 35 cubic feet) gm = Gram (0.353 oz.)mg = Milligram (0.001 grams - to convert grams to milligrams multiply by 1,000)cc = Cubic centimeter ( m3 or 1.0 gm)1 oz. = gm66 minutes = time average man uses 1 m3 of air
4 MEDIAN INCAPACITATION DOSAGE (IC50) - The amount of inhaled vapor or aerosol which is sufficientto incapacitate 50% of exposed personnel. Usually expressed inmilligrams per minute in one cubic meter of air.
6 INCAPACITATION CONCENTRATION TIME (ICT50) - Concentration (IC50) multiplied by the time (t) of exposure thatincapacitates 50% of exposed personnel. Usually expressed inminutes of exposure.! .004 mg/m3 - smallest amount a human can detect.(British Government Study)! 0.5 mg/m3 - amount that riot bystanders usually retreat at.! 4.0 mg/m3 - amount that rioters will usually disperse at.
12 SAFETY FACTOR - Ratio between the lethal and incapacitating dose of an agent (LCT50/ICT50).CN: IC50 = 20 milligrams per minute / cubic meter of air.LC50 = 14,000 milligrams per minute / cubic meter of airSAFETY FACTOR OF 700CS: IC50 = 20 milligrams per minute / cubic meter of air.LC50 = 25,000 milligrams per minute / cubic meter of airSAFETY FACTOR OF 1,250
