Related to ozonolysis: Hydroboration


The splitting of a double bond in a hydrocarbon chain on treatment with ozone, with the formation of two carbon-containing structures, typically two aldehydes (an ozonide is the unstable intermediate); has been used to determine the structure of unsaturated fatty acids.
