The only beneficial place for ozone is the ozone layer - at ground level it is
Bad News. It's at least one hundred times more toxic than hydrogen cyanide and
the only reasons you don't immediately drop dead from sniffing it are:
1) you can smell it at *much* lower concentrations than HCN (0.04ppm or so)
2) it kills much more slowly and horribly.
Ozone is a respiratory poison and is highly reactive and will destroy lung
tissue, the covering of your eyes and just about anything else it contacts.
Nasty stuff. If you can smell it *persistently* you need better ventilation,
even a micro coil in a closed room can be a hazard. The threshold limit value
(TLV) is 0.1ppm - about the same as phosgene (world war 1 poison gas.) 50ppm
will probably kill a person in one hour.
"IDLH" in the above NIOSH reference stands for "Immediately Dangerous to
Health". Just 5ppm of ozone is so classified. Beware.
