Reference Entry
Molina, Mario Jos� (1943-) is a Mexican-born American chemist who contributed to the discovery that artificial substances called chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's) damage the protective ozone layer in the earth's upper atmosphere. Ozone, a form of oxygen, shields the earth from the sun's ultraviolet radiation, which can harm living things. Molina shared the 1995 Nobel Prize in chemistry with American chemist Frank Sherwood Rowland and Dutch chemist Paul Josef Crutzen. Crutzen discovered that nitrogen oxides accelerate ozone reduction.
