The synthesis of stable nitrosonium salts end their use as oxidizing agents in organic chemistry will be summarized. Thoes systems in which nitroxides are oxidized to nitrosonium salts which, in turn. Function as oxidants (mediated systems) will also be discussed. Nitrosonilum salts can be used to oxidize alcohols (to aldehydes or ketones), primary amines (to aldehydes, or in certain case=, RCH2NH2, to nitriles), ketones (to α-diketones), and phenols (to quinones). Some dehydrogenations are also known, as well as other miscellaneous reactions.
