Synonyms containing difluoromonochloromethane
We've found 1 synonym:
Chlorodifluoromethane or difluoromonochloromethane is a hydrochlorofluorocarbon. This colorless gas is better known as HCFC-22, or R-22. It is commonly used as a propellant and refrigerant. These applications are being phased out in developed countries due to the compound's ozone depletion potential and high global warming potential, although global use of R-22 continues to increase because of high demand in developing countries. R-22 is a versatile intermediate in industrial organofluorine chemistry, e.g. as a precursor to tetrafluoroethylene.
