Looking for the chemical recipie for this smoke effect. Essentially two compounds, which when mixed, react to produce smoke without flame. I recall one of them is acetic acid, but not totally certain.

Yeah pretty sure this stuff is illegal now. It's unbelievably hazardous to human lungs. I saw some interviews with the cast of Aliens and all of them at some point or another had to be treated for breathing problems during the making of the film because so much AB smoke was pumped into the set and it's tight spaces.
