Oxone and methanol reaction produces formaldehyde?


So as many know I have been working with oxone
When I ran into its reaction with alcohols
It slowly reacts now I dont know what I made but it smells I dont know how describe it.

The clear liquid has yellow like liquid floating in it
It is oxone and isopropyl alcohol and the other one is methyl alcohol with oxone formed an insoluble mix the oxone did not desolve well so I added water but the alcohols are clearly reacting slowly the methanol mix is white solid slush and smells. Both on the bottom there is a yellow color.

Enviroment for bacteria and mold


I do not like starting new posts if its a continuation
Not sure if this is a new find or just aging
So like before I had methanol and oxone mix and I had this odd smell for all those biologist it formed different molds and bacteria because I am not familiar and not equipt to work with it.
it was all promptly destroyed there after

The mixture was stored in a small sealed container
Once opened was greeted with mold and bacteria lots of different kinds.

Maybe a good enviroment for bacteria some of them thrive in it very well.

The main question what odd smell i was being produced before
Did it help in creating this environment

Be cautious that some alcohol may form keton or aldehyds that when reacted with oxone forms dangerously explosive peroxides....
