Ozone's cidal activity is attributed to its oxidative effects on the cell wall and membrane of bacteria and on the protein envelope and nucleic acid structure of viruses.

There is some variance in half-life times for inactivation of pathogenic organisms, but none have been found to be fully resistant.

The following is a partial list organisms for which ozone has been found to be effective against.
