Ozone is a molecule (O3) composed of three oxygen atoms (O) with a characteristic odor. Ozone molecules in the air decompose back to oxygen (O2) within a few days under normal conditions. Ozone is a powerful and toxic oxidant that can cause irritation of the respiratory tract and eyes and favor respiratory diseases in humans and animals. Ozone is used for cleaning and sterilization of surfaces. Ozone can be produced by low pressure plasmas and by electrical discharge.
