  Dioxiranes are formed by the reaction of ketones with peroxy sulfate (Oxone™), and are usually generated in situ. They perform a variety of oxygen transfer reactions, usually to nucleophilic reagents, including epoxidation of double bonds, α-oxidation of enol silyl ethers, oxidation of amines to hydroxylamines and nitro compounds, oxidation of selenides to selenoxides, and sulfides to sulfoxides
