Chlorofluorocarbon are compounds of carbon, chlorine, fluorine and occasionally hydrogen.
CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) are gases which are used in a variety of applications, including solvents, refrigerants, and aerosol sprays. They’re organic chemicals made up of carbon, occasionally hydrogen, chlorine, and fluorine.
Because of their low toxicity, reactivity, and flammability, chlorofluorocarbons are used in a number of applications. Every conceivable combination of fluorine, chlorine, and hydrogen-based on methane and ethane has been investigated, and the majority of them have been commercialized.
