According to the article; The Moscow Theatre Hostage Crisis: Incapacitants and Chemical Warfare; written by the Chemical and Biological Weapons Non-Proliferation Program.

"…Russian special police units resorted to using an incapacitating gas based on the drug fentanyl to end the crisis."

The full article can be found here: http://cns.miis.edu/stories/02110b.htm

I probably should have guessed it would be fentanyl-based - my dad works as a MD (anesthisia) and told me the strongest they had was remifentanil.

(Moved to this thread by kato13. think it was posted to the East German Thread in error)

The US tried something similar in Vietnam in the form of grenades -- it was called BZ. It was quickly rejected because the results were too unpredictable.

You'll probably never figure out exactly what it was, as the wiki article said that in July 2008 the Russians would release all information regarding the chemical in a closed session of the UN courts. So they don't want people to know what they used. Unless the UN spills it, you'll probably just get the best guesses of what people think it was.

I read somewhere (on the net) that under US trials of BZ-gas people was under the influence for days after exposure
