Abstract: O-containing ozone, is an essential feature of the unusual oxygen isotope effect in ozone formation. Whereas information on r 49 is sparse and of limited accuracy, precision in laboratory measurements of r 50 has recently been improved. The two most recent experiments, however, disagree on whether there is a preference for the formation of asymmetric over symmetric molecules or not (r 50 > 2 versus r 50 = 2). To throw light on this discrepancy, the temperature dependence of r 50 has been derived from a reanal…
