This thesis explores the ignition hazards and thermophysical properties of alternative refrigerants with low global warming potential and efficient heat transfer properties for domestic and cryogenic applications. The research outcomes improve the data situation and predictive capabilities of select thermodynamic models used to design modern refrigeration cycles. The results will help industry improve the safety aspects of employing eco-friendly refrigerants for public usage and aid in the development of new and efficient cooling systems for both domestic and industrial applications.
