Selenoxide oxidations[edit]

In the paragraph mentioned above, some oxidation reactions are reported which to me in the sence as they are discribed in this paragraph are highly ununderstandable. As I have no access to a scientific library I depend on the information in Wikipedia I am not able to track down the chemistry involved. Please who, that has access to scientific sources, is so kind to clearify this mist? T.vanschaik (talk) 09:49, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I will try to fix this. In return, please revert or correct your addition last week about RSeCl3 synthesis. SeOCl2 has nothing to do with that class of compounds.--Smokefoot (talk) 13:00, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Selenone, are they R2SeO2 or R2SeO[edit]

The description of selenones is confused. In the text it is described as R2SeO (ketone analog) in the picture it is shown as R2SeO2 , a sulfone analog. Axiosaurus (talk) 08:57, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Aaaagh! Now I see(?) - selones R2CSe, are sometimes called selenones (e.g. by IUPAC) whereas selenone usually refers to R2SeO2, (sulfone analog) what a mess!Axiosaurus (talk) 10:38, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
