Ozone reacts with the carbon-carbon double bonds of unsaturated fatty acids from vegetable oils giving rise to the formation of chemical species, such as ozonides and peroxides that are responsible for the germicidal action, as well as the properties of stimulating tissue repair and regeneration [11, 12].
3] and biomolecules to form ozonides and free radicals triggers inflammatory responses and systemic oxidative stress in the cardiorespiratory system (Srebot et al.
In addition to peroxides, peroxyhydrates, peroxopolyoxometallates, superoxides, and ozonides are known peroxo compounds.
However, the researchers discovered that, when the fluid is acidic--a pathological condition found in asthmatics--ascorbic acid instead reacts with ozone to form potentially harmful compounds ca]led ozonides.
Then, the decomposition of ozonides produces inert substances such as alcohol, ketone or acid.
