Answer: The starting material involved in the formation of 5-Oxoheptanal is 1-ethylcyclopent-1-ene, as shown in the following reaction.Explanation: Ozone is one of the reactive allotrope of oxygen. Reacts vigorously with compounds unsaturated such as alkenes and alkynes. In this reaction alkene and O₃ first react to produce a Molozonide which is very unstable and rearranges to form a stable ozonid as shown in the attached diagram below. In addition, the ozonid in the reduction of convertwed in ketones and aldehydes, respectively.
