In the ozone example about homogeneous catalysts in lecture today, which species is actually the catalyst?

I'm pretty sure the catalyst was NO (g).

Yes, NO(g) was the catalyst. It was used up in the first step of the mechanism, but then re-produced in the second step of the mechanism.

What was the purpose of the UV? Was it only to reach the activation energy?
