 ozone /ˈoˌzon/

From: DICT.TW English-Chinese Medical Dictionary 英漢醫學字典

 ozone /ˈoˌzon/ 名詞

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 o·zone n.  Chem. A colorless gaseous substance (O3) 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 strong oxidizer, and probably exists in the air, though by the 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.

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n : a colorless gas (O3) soluble in alkalis and cold water; a
          strong oxidizing agent; can be produced by electric
          discharge in oxygen or by the action of ultraviolet
          radiation on oxygen in the stratosphere (where it acts as
          a screen for ultraviolet radiation)
