Class 12 Chemistry P Block Elements Properties of Ozone

Properties of ozone  

Physical properties

  • It is blue gas with pungent odour.
  • It is heavier than air.
  • It is slightly soluble in water.
  • It is diamagnetic.
  • The depletion of ozone is harmful for us.


Chemical properties

  1. Effect of heat: If we heat ozone t decompose to give oxygen molecule that is 2O---> 3O
  2. Oxidizing agent: It is stronger oxidizing agent than oxygen gas

Because it decomposes to form:


        So both the oxygen form oxidizes the other.
