Ozonolysis is an organic reaction where ozone (O3) reacts with alkenes (olefins) to break the double bond and form two carbonyl groups. This reaction is often used to identify the structure of unknown alkenes by breaking them down into smaller, more easily identifiable pieces. Ozonolysis also occurs naturally and would break down repeated units used in rubber and other polymers. Ozonolysis is also an important reaction from the synthetic perspective with compounds that have several functional groups. On an industrial scale, azelaic acid and pelargonic acids are produced from ozonolysis.
