    I HAVE A CHALLENGE FOR ANYONE WHO THINKS OUTSIDE THE BOX!
    Chemistry is crucial to my research and I am perfectly willing to bow down to a greater mind on this subject because the outcome would be a far greater victory then never having asked for help.
    Here goes... Is it possible to use atmospheric chlorine from chlorofluorocarbons and atmospheric CO2 to create O3.
    In plain english, could chlorine interact with CO2 to yield O3?

    Please, if you can solve this piece of the puzzle, it would quite literally mean the world to me.

    i honestly don't have a clue,

    i suppose if the right condidtions were there, it t'would be poissible. but you would almost defenitly need the right set of conditions for it to work,

    and i don't think the atmosphere is the right place,

    hope thats any help, is there any particular reason for your question?

    Atmospheric chlorine destroys ozone on contact. Ozone is a very reactive, unstable molecule.

    It seems very unlikely to me that chlorine could ever react with CO2 in the atmosphere to produce ozone.

    I doubt it also but if anything, the equation would be:

    3 CO2 + 6 Cl2 ==> 3 CCl4 + 2 O3

    Carbon dioxide reacting with Atmospheric chlorine to yeild Carbon Tetrachloride and Ozone.
