The working agent in a refrigerating system that absorbs carries or releases heat from the place to be cooled or refrigerated can be termed as a refrigerant. This heat transfer generally takes place through a phase change of the refrigerant. In this paper, we shall study about the different refrigerants used in various refrigeration systems. At present, we have a large number of refrigerants available to us depending on the requirements of the particular refrigerating system. This paper is intended to serve as an introductory guide to the study of refrigerants.
