Ozone (O3) is a naturally occurring, odourless, colourless gas composed of three molecules of oxygen (O3). It happens in the stratosphere above Earth and the troposphere close to the surface. The gas ozone (O3) is odoriferous and invisible, ranging in hue from colourless to blue. Ozone exposure has been linked to various adverse health effects, including headaches, coughing, dry throat, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and fluid buildup in the lungs. Intensified signs and symptoms may result from prolonged exposure. Asthma may develop with long-term exposure. Ozone exposure can be harmful to workers. The dose, length of time, and nature of the work all contribute to the total amount of exposure.
Christian Friedrich Schönbein, a German-Swiss chemist, first identified and isolated Ozone(O3) in 1839.
