What Am I? Season 2 Episode 1

Below I’ve listed the key chemicals or elements found in a commonly available  product, which may (or may not) be slightly UK-centric.  All chemicals drawn below are part of the same product.  I’ve drawn the chemical structures of principal components where simple and appropriate; given the E number or CAS number (however tempting Sigma-Aldrich catalogue numbers would be) if no simple chemical structure exists for an additive; and given the chemical formulae or name if neither of the above make sense.  See if you can guess what this is!  If no one gets it within 24 hours, I will post a clue.  If you guess on Twitter (@kjhaxton), please DM your guess so others can play.

  1. First guess hunch without looking up any of the structures: pepper spray

    I’m pretty sure one of those structures is capscaisin (top one??) and propylene glycol means it’s probably not for eating, which is why I’m guessing pepper spray.
