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.
