      ozone as means of oxidation?  Bookmark   

I've been playing around with ozone for various reasons (none hive-chem related), and while doing some midnight research at the Univ on various ozone generating cells, I came across a ref mentioning using ozone + eugenol -> vanillin (it wasnt very detailed and I didn't have time to go further into it).  Anyway, I started perusing rhodium's chem page, which focuses on the hallucinogenic amphetamines (never much of an interest of mine, ingesting nor producing)- and I'm seeing tons of procedures involving oxidation....
Is o3 not practical (or simply won't work?) for any of these procedures?

It's not practical on a bigger scale. But aldehyde synth. with ozone is an old, well-known procedure.
