Properties of ozone
- 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.
- Effect of heat: If we heat ozone t decompose to give oxygen molecule that is 2O3 ---> 3O
- Oxidizing agent: It is stronger oxidizing agent than oxygen gas
Because it decomposes to form:
So both the oxygen form oxidizes the other.
