Abstract

Hydroxylamines, oximes and hydroxamic acids that are also associated with a peroxy group are considered. To be both brief and selective, only those species that are heterocycles with N[BOND]O and O[BOND]O or N[BOND]O[BOND]O bonding are included. Plausible, but inadequately characterized, classes of compounds are also discussed.
