    Freon is a chemical that is used for coiling. IT is in a coil and when electricity runs through it it gets cold. It's commonly used in Air COnditioners and Refridgerators. IT is also (I think highly) toxic.

    Freon (a trade name for a group of chlorofluorocarbons aka CFCs) plays bloody h3LL on the ozone. It is no longer used as a refridgerant in the US of A for this reason. As for toxicity I found contradictory accounts. It may depend on the particular CFC in question.

    I really don't think there is one "current chemical" . I did a Google search and skimmed the first bunch of links that looked like they might have info pertaining to what "freon" was. That's when I found out that it was a trade name for a group of chlorofluorocarbons and that it was once used as a propellant in aerasol sprays as well as a refridgerant. I'm sure that with a little more digging, the name of the replacement chemical(s) could be found.
