I've often wondered if organic peroxides could be used in epoxidation reactions, we all know of dimethyldioxirane ( but what of the other organic peroxides? Dibenzoyl peroxide and MEK Peroxide are both easily available in high-strength, whereas for many people the same cannot be said of H2O2 (especially since the London Bombing). I'd really like to know, it could solve a serious acquisition issue for people I know

    There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
    And drinking largely sobers us again.
