Acetylene is a hydrocarbon and the simplest alkyne. It is used for welding and cutting.
Ozonolysis is the method of oxidatively cleaving alkenes or alkynes using ozone.
Ozone is a reactive allotrope of oxygen. In the ozonolysis method, the unsaturated bonds are cleaved.
Oxidative ozonolysis produces carboxylic acids or ketones. Reductive ozonolysis gives either alcohol or carbonyl compounds.
