Ozonolysis is the cleavage of an alkene or alkyne with ozone (${O}_{3}$). The process allows for carbon-carbon double or triple bonds to be replaced by double bonds with oxygen. This reaction is often used to identify the structure of unknown alkenes. by breaking them down into smaller, more easily identifiable pieces.
