n.
A chemical reaction of ozone with another substance, usually an unsaturated organic compound, resulting in bond cleavage, used in synthesis and in analysis to locate the position of double and triple bonds in organic molecules.

An important example described in literature involves the oxidative cleavage of double bonds using ozonolysis reaction.
The next standard reaction for this type of cleavage reaction is an ozonolysis reaction, which was attempted, but again, the olefin proved unreactive.
Dr Beames intends to use this Fellowship to build a new research group at Cardiff University, using advanced physical chemistry techniques to study an elusive intermediate species in these ozonolysis reactions, which are known as Criegee intermediates (carbonyl oxides).
