MARIO MOLINA

In 1995, Mario Molina received a Nobel prize in chemistry for his work in atmospheric chemistry and the effect of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) on the depletion of the ozone layer.

Mario went to several different colleges.The main ones are Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg, University of Califorina, and Berkely.

The ozone layer is what protects life on Earth.This layer keeps out harmful ultravoiet rays and other harmful gases.

When he was 11 years old he was sent to Switzerland to study the German language.A chemist had to know it.

Born-March 19, 1943His parents are Leonor Molina and Roberto MolinaHe was born in Mexico city, Mexico. Mario's aunt Esther was a chemist.

The discoveries led to an international environmental treaty, which bans the production of industrial chemicals that reduce the ozone layer.

ABOUT THE CHEMIST

Mario's Education

Research and discovery

Impact on science

During his first year at Berkeley,he took courses in physics and mathematics, in addition to the required courses in physical chemistry.

The ozone hole is located in Antarctica. This layer has been deteriorating for a very long time. The Constant push on the ozone layer of aresol and other gases in space has been breaking this layer.

It all began in the 1960s when scientists noticed that their measurements of ozone in the atmosphere were lower than what their models predicted they should be. The scientists believed that either naturally or artificially created chemicals were somehow depleting the ozone.

Plants cannot live and grow in heavy ultraviolet radiation, nor can the plankton that serve as food for most of the ocean life.
