Formaldoxime is the organic compound with the formula H2C=NOH. It is the oxime of formaldehyde. A colorless liquid, the pure compound tends to polymerize into a trimer. Aqueous solutions are stable as is the hydrochloride. It is a reagent in organic synthesis for the conversion of aryl diazonium salts to aryl aldehydes.[1]

It is generated by combining hydroxylamine and formaldehyde.[2]
