    Bethany – you could have made more of the absolute best thing about ozonolysis reactions – the blue colour they go while you’re pumping ozone through the reaction is awesome! Always brightened up my day.
    Plus if you use an indicator like nile red to prevent over-oxidation of sensitive functionality you get a pretty colour change from deep red to a kind of peach colour.

    I LOVE the mechanism for the ozonolysis :)

    Do you have a picture of an ozonolysis reaction? They don’t let us set up reactions at C&EN.

    Hi Bethany,

    Sorry, I gave up life ‘in the hood’ a little while ago. Google seems remarkably short on ozonolysis images too – shame!

    I think the idea of a fumehood in the corner of the C&EN office is one you should press for some funding for – think of all the fun (and useful stock photos) you could get out of it…
