Ozone is a relatively unstable molecule that constantly breaks down into O2 and O, with the presence of NO(as a catalyst)the process speeds up. Homogenous catalysts constantly interact with the reactant to form an intermediate substance, then interacts with another reactant to regenerate the original catalyst and forms product. NO reacts with O3 and is regenerated in the intermediate processes. In the presence of NO, the decomposition of ozone would be faster due to NO's catalytic nature.
