Personal Fact of Frank Sherwood Rowland

Frank Sherwood Rowland, lovingly called Sherry by his colleagues, was an American chemist and Nobel laureate, who researched in the field of atmospheric chemistry and chemical kinetics. Born in late 1920s in Delaware, he had his education, first at Ohio Wesleyan University and then at the University of Chicago.

Thereafter, he began his career at Princeton University as Instructor of Chemistry, shifting from there to the University of Kansas and then to the University of California, where he remained for the rest of his life. It was here at California that he undertook his Nobel Prize winning work on chlorofluorocarbons, which was then being regularly used in air conditioners, refrigerators, and aerosol sprays.

Working with Mario Molina, he established that such use had dangerous consequence on the stratospheric ozone layer, making holes in it. Not satisfied with merely establishing the fact, he raised his voice against regular use of CFC and became instrumental to banning it first in the USA and later all over the world. The 1987 Montreal protocol was actually the result of his tireless crusade against the use of chlorofluorocarbons.
