I believe you are referring to 1,3 butadiene which is an important industrial chemical.

This is not a simple question because it depends on the reaction conditions such as temperature and pressure and what type of catalyst may be present, if any.

However, in general when an alkene - a carbon compound with a double bond - reacts with ozone, the products are either an aldehyde or a carboxylic acid depending on whether the reaction takes place under alkaline or acidic conditions.

To see the intermediate ozonoid structures I will refer you to the reference below.

the mechanism is different from what i am looking for. Please help me out ! thanks.

i believe that two ozonoids are formed at the adjacent position which will cleave  oxidativly forming actaldehyde,carbondioxide and formaldehyde. please give me written mechanism of this.thanks
