Ozonolysis is a reaction that uses O3 reagent under oxidative or reductive conditions to break the C=C and give C=O. Under reductive conditions, the products are either ketones or aldehydes (depending on the alkene). Under oxidative conditions, the products are ketones or carboxylic acid. Watch the video below to learn how to predict the starting alkene when given ozonolysis products.
