    R134a is the most widely used refrigerant in domestic refrigerators. It must be phased out soon according to Kyoto protocol due to its high global warming potential (GWP) of 1300. It has been proposed that by previous experimental investigations, R290/R600a is the best alternate ozone friendly...
