As we learnt in 

Ozonolysis -

Ozonolysis of alkenes involved the addition of ozone molecules to alkene to form ozonide and then cleavage of the ozonide by Zn - H2O to smalter molecules.This reaction is highly useful in detecting the position of the double bond in alkene or other unsaturated compounds.
