New Jersey researcher receives award for developing ozone-friendly aerosol

...e 21st century. Freon is a colorless, nonflammable liquid that was once commonly used in aerosols such as antiperspirants. The U.S. government banned Freon and other ozone-destroying chemicals in 1995. The chemical propellant developed by aerosol antiperspirant manufacturers to replace Freon reacts with the...
