Title: A historical look at chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants

Abstract

A class of chemical compounds called chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants has been in widespread use since the 1930s in such diverse applications as refrigerants for refrigerating and air-conditioning systems, blowing agents for plastic foams, solvents for microelectronic circuitry and dry cleaning, sterilants for medical instruments, aerosol propellants for personal hygiene products and pesticides, and freezants for food. This paper describes the historical development of the chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants and gives brief biographical sketches of the inventors. 85 refs., 8 figs., 4 tabs.
