Oxone (Potassium peroxymonosulfate, 2KHSO5·KHSO4·K2SO4)
Mechanism + Description
Depends on catalysts and additives present
Oxone is often used as a co-oxidant or terminal oxidant with various metal and non-metal catalysts. This material can oxidize alcohols to aldehydes and ketones alone, but over oxidation is often an issue. Whilst this reagent has a high mol wt hence poor atom economy, it is cheap, and the by-products are innocuous.

Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis 2006, 348, 877-880 An effective, cheap, environmentally benign and catalyst-free oxidation of alcohols was carried out at room temperature using tetra-n-butylammonium Oxone®(TBA-OX) as oxidant with moderate to high selectivity for most of the alcohols using water as the solvent.
