The literature shows that ozone attacks double bonds by formation of unstable ozonides, which lead to the formation of carbonyl groups, preferentially acid groups (33).
Examples include primary and secondary ozonides, peroxyhemiacetals, [alpha]-hydroxy ketones, [alpha]-hydroxy hydroperoxides, and peroxyacyl nitrates (Atkinson and Arey 2003; Docherty et al.
