"Old refrigerators are salvaged to build a laboratory cooler and a gas liquefier"
-details using OTC components to build a gas liquefaction appartus. this is dated and uses freon as the coolant but will adapt to
modern refrigerants. details piping/soldering to achieve regeneration. etc. Neat stuff.
Amateur Scientist from Scientific American page 151 november 1969
"The chemistry student -'Cooling and refrigeration' " - talks about various methods available on a student level to achieve
cooling - among them are Peltier, chemical action, Joule-Thompson effect, absorption of latent heat, etc. as well as refrigerating
fluids like ammonia, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, methyl chloride, ethyl chloride. And my favorite the ammonia-water
absorption cycle. featuring the Crosley Icy Balls. lots of diagrams

anywho hope this helps some with the cooling questions
