A colorless gaseous substance (O/) obtained (as by the silent discharge of electricity in oxygen) as an allotropic form of oxygen, containing three atoms in the molecule. It is a streng oxidizer, and probably exists in the air, though by he ordinary tests it is liable to be confused with certain other substances, as hydrogen dioxide, or certain oxides of nitrogen. It derives its name from its peculiar odor, which resembles that of weak chlorine.

Same etymon as Ozaena. The powerfully odorous matter produced when a current of ordinary electricity passes from pointed bodies into the air.-Schonbein. It is presumed to be a peculiar modification of oxygen; and its varying quantity in the atmosphere is supposed to affect the health of man. Air containing ozone is said to be ozonized.

An allotropic form of oxygen produced by the discharge of an electric machine in air or in oxygen gas, or by the electrolysis of water. It is constantly present in the atmosphere, but in very small amount. It is a colorless gas of peculiar odor, and, chemically, consists of oxygen so condensed that 3 atoms of the element occupy a molecule instead of 2, as in ordinary oxygen gas. Its symbol is therefore O3. When condensed, it is dark blue in color. It very readily parts with its extra atom of oxygen and is hence one of the most energetic oxidizing agents, attacking organic substances, such as caoutchouc, destroying organic tissues, and decolorizing blood. It has accordingly been used as a bleaching and disinfecting material. O. is slightly soluble in water. It is a powerful disinfectant. [Gr.]
