What are chlorofluorocarbons? What are their uses? Why do they pose a threat to the environment?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The chlorofluorocarbons, their uses, and their threat to the environment are to be described.

Concept Introduction:

Compounds that consist of a carbon atom are considered organic compounds and the study of these carbon consisting compounds is known as organic chemistry.

An organic compound is considered a hydrocarbon if it consists of only carbon and hydrogen atoms. The atoms in a hydrocarbon compound are linked by a single, double, or triple bond.

A group of atoms accountable for the specific reactions in order to form a particular compound is known as functional group.

Explanation of Solution

Chlorofluorocarbons are formed by the replacement of hydrogen atoms with chlorine and fluorine atoms in hydrocarbon compounds. It has two major commercial applications: as propellants and as refrigerants.

The stability of the upper atmosphere is threatened by this apparent stability of chlorofluorocarbons as they remain intact till reaching the upper atmosphere...
