# What are the Lewis structures of ozone, and hydrogen peroxide? How are they used in equations?

But ozone is a (bent) neutral, elemental molecule. We could advance a Lewis structure of $O = \stackrel{+}{O} - {O}^{-}$, with individual oxidation numbers from the left of $0 , + I , - I$. Of course the average oxidation number is $0$.
For hydrogen peroxide, $H - O - O - H$, we have an oxygen oxidation number of $- I$. Ozone and hydrogen peroxide (and of course dioxygen) are all potent oxidants; ozone would be very fierce.
