Moreover, we will also develop capabilities for monitoring of CI species directly in ozonolysis reactions using UV/vis absorption spectroscopy, enabling the direct determination of CI yields from ozonolysis reactions and the investigation of CI chemistry under more realistic atmospheric conditions.
On the other hand, ozonolysis of cholesterol affords secosterol A as the main product [115, 118, 119].
Finally, UV radiation creates oxidation by ozonolysis below the surface rather than barely on the outer surface.
The examples of chemical or physico-chemical pretreatment include acidic pretreatment, alkaline pretreatment, ozonolysis pretreatment, and wet oxidation, gas treatment, steam explosion, and solvent extraction techniques.

This food science collection reviews current knowledge about enzymes for the dairy and baking industries, membrane technology for food processing, detection of pathogens transmitted through animals, tenderization of meat products, the biological properties of mushrooms, irradiation of fruits and vegetables, and the ozonolysis of chemical and biochemical compounds.
Carbon isotopic fractionation in the biosynthesis of bacterial fatty acids: ozonolysis of unsaturated fatty acids as a means of determining the intramolecular distribution of carbon isotopes.
In 3 h OZSBO, the hydroxyl absorption band increased broadly within 3,500 to 3,300 [cm.sup.-1], while the ethylene band within 1,620 to 1,600 [cm.sup.-1] disappeared due to the ozonolysis.
Researchers Zaikin and Zaikina cover the theory of radiation-induced cracking reactions in hydrocarbons, experimental studies of radiation-thermal cracking in hydrocarbons, methods for petroleum processing based on radiation-thermal cracking, the complex radiation-thermal treatment and radiation ozonolysis of petroleum feedstock, and the high dose-rate radiation processing of petroleum feedstock in a wide temperature range.
A variety of AOPs are based on ozonolysis, UV/Vis photocatalysis and the Fenton reaction [1] and include the formation, and reactions of *OH radicals that are much more reactive than all the other oxidizing species used in oxidative pollution abatement in drinking water and in wastewater [5,13] These highly reactive radicals promote the destruction of the target pollutant until mineralization [14, 15].
Therefore, the acidic condition stabilize ozone, and it promotes ozonolysis of probe 1 in the first step.
Ozonolysis is of great interest to synthetic organic chemistry because it is one of the most efficient tools for oxidatively cleaving carbon-carbon double bonds [36].
