Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



"Tropospheric Degradation Chemistry of HCFC-123 (CF3CHCl2): A Proposed Replacement Chlorofluorocarbon," G.D. Hayman (AEA Consultancy Serv., Harwell Lab., Didcot, Oxon OX11 0RA, UK), M.E. Jenkin et al., Atmos. Environ., 28(3), 421-437, Mar. 1994.

Used kinetic and mechanistic data from laboratory studies to formulate a chemical module of the degradation. The module was incorporated into a 2D model of the global troposphere so that the potential impact of using HCFC-123 can be assessed.

Item #d94jul120

"The Atmospheric Degradation and Impact of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (Hydrofluorocarbon 134a)," J. Franklin (Solvay Res. & Technol., 310 Rue Ransbeek, B-1120 Brussels, Belg.), Chemosphere, 27(8), 1565-1601, Aug. 1993.

A literature review of HFC-134a, a proposed alternative to fully halogenated CFCs. Includes environmental distribution; breakdown mechanisms, kinetics and products; contribution to tropospheric ozone formation and global warming; and removal of degradation products from the atmosphere.
