Does ozone have coordinate bond?

Co-ordinate bond is a type of alternate covalent bond that is formed by sharing of electron pair from a single atom. Both shared electrons are donated by the same atom. It is also called dative bond or dipolar bond.Each oxygen atom has 6 electrons in its outermost shell. Since the ozone molecule has 3 oxygen atoms, its Lewis dot structure is as follows: Here, we can see that the central oxygen atom forms a double bond with one oxygen atom but donates two electrons to the other oxygen atom to form a coordinate bond. Hence O3 contains a coordinate bond.
