chemistry - ozone

hi, can anybody tell me the molecules that destroy ozone? i need a fair few molecules to write in my homework...thanks!


The main species responsible for destroying ozone in the stratosphere is Cl atoms. Br atoms are also very effective but there aren't many around. Collisions of O3 with other O3 atoms molecules or with O atoms also result in removal, but such collisions are rare.
