Can anyone explain equilibrium, rates of reaction and how chlorine (and chloroalkanes) causes ozone depletion in the stratosphere? thanks

A text book can certainly explain the first two. I suggest that you read one ...

Dynamic equilibrium is reached when, in a reversible reaction, the rate of forward reaction is equal to the rate of the backward reaction and the concentrations of both the reactants and products remain constant.

Rate of reaction is essentially how quickly the reaction proceeds, it can be increased with temperature or the use of a catalyst. The key is the number of collisions with an energy that surpass the activation energy (Ea) of the reaction.

Can't remember Ozone depletion, but it's basically chlorine radicals and a few equations. It's dead easy
