Expert Answer:

Dear Student
Ozonolysis is the cleavage of an alkene or alkyne with ozone to form organic compounds in which the multiple carbon-carbon bond has been replaced by a double bond to oxygen.The outcome of the reaction depends on the type of multiple bond being oxidized and the workup conditions.
