Fluorocarbon Refrigerants can be segmented by Geographies, Companies, Applications and Ingredients. http://www.micromarketmonitor.com/market-report/fluorocarbon-refrigerants-reports-6093777763.html. (PRWEB) July 10, 2014 Fluorocarbons are the most commonly used refrigerants. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC), and Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) are the types of fluorochemicals commonly used as refrigerants. However, due to the relatively high ODPs and GWPs, CFC and HCFC...

University of East Anglia Scientists at the University of East Anglia have found two new chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and one new hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) in the atmosphere. The research, published today in the journal Atmosphere, comes after another four man-made gases were discovered by the same team in March. Scientists made the discovery by comparing today's air samples with air collected between 1978 and 2012 in unpolluted Tasmania, and samples taken during aircraft...

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It was in the 1970s that the British Antarctic Survey discovered a hole in the ozone layer above the Antarctic Circle, and in 1985, when the first measurements were taken, researchers were dumbfounded by the dramatic drop in ozone levels. The concern was so great that it eventually led to the ban of all products containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were confirmed to be the root cause of the ozone depletion. Fast forward...

Direct Evidence That Elemental Fluorine Occurs In Nature
2012-07-05 13:35:43

200-year long dispute over smelly mineral from Upper Palatinate resolved Fluorine is the most reactive of all chemical elements and calls for extremely careful handling. It is so aggressive that glass laboratory instruments cannot resist it and even bricks burn when exposed to fluorine gas. Yet elemental fluorine has numerous industrial applications including corrosion prevention or fuel tank diffusion barriers and it is used for the production of sulphur hexafluoride, which serves as...

Chemicals that helped solve a global environmental crisis in the 1990s "” the hole in Earth's protective ozone layer "” may be making another problem "” acid rain "” worse, scientists are reporting. Their study on the chemicals that replaced the ozone-destroying chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) once used in aerosol spray cans, air conditioners, refrigerators, and other products, appears in ACS' Journal of Physical Chemistry A, a weekly publication. Jeffrey Gaffney, Carrie J....
