A yellow wood glue is best for repairing wooden chairs.
There is also one called Gorilla glue, this is good also.
It is best, in the case of rungs, etc. to remove the loose part completely and sand off all previous glue before re-assembly. The yellow glues are water-based which will swell the wood after applying and form a good joint. After glueing it is also best to apply clamps or a ratchet strap until the glue is dry, usually overnight.

Fred has given you some good advice. The only difference between his technique and mine is that I usually scrape the glue off the stretchjer tenons instead of sanding - but that's just because I'm cheap and sandpaper costs money!!!

BTW - you can get ZAP at the following web site if you really want to use it.
