any of a series of compounds formed by the action of ozone on unsaturated organic compounds
Any of various, often chemical molecules formed by the attachment of ozone to a double bond or triple bond in an organic compound as an intermediate in ozonolysis.
- (chemistry) the univalent anion, O3-, derived from ozone
- (chemistry) any dark red salt of this anion and a metal
- (chemistry) any of a number of explosive organic compounds containing a -O-O-O- group
- (chemistry) any of a class of heterocycles, containing two carbon atoms (in positions 3 and 5) and three oxygen atoms (in positions 1, 2 and 4) produced by the reaction of ozone with a carbon to carbon double bond; the 1,2,4-trioxolanes
