Description

A compound containing carbons with one or more halogens attached. Hydrogens are located at any remaining bonding sites on the carbons. Monomeric halocarbons, such as Freon®, are used as refrigerants, propellants and fire-extinguishing agents. Polymerized halocarbon resins, such as Teflon®, are stable and have high chemical resistance.
