In brief: Alcohol/Caffeine
Chemicals that cause urination are referred to as diuretics.
Many commonly encountered substances increase the need to urinate, most notably alcoholic beverages and those containing caffeine. Of course, simply drinking a lot of any liquid should result in an increased need to urinate assuming the person has normal kidney function.
