We report a detailed analysis of the electronic structure of methyl oxirane, including core-level photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray absorption at both C and O K-shells, resonant Auger and normal Auger spectroscopy. The X-ray absorption spectra (XAS) around the C K-edge can be easily interpreted on the ground of the chemical shift between the carbon atoms with different chemical environments. The X-ray absorption data around the O K-edge are quite structureless, hinting for a likely fragmentation process (possibly implying a ring-opening reaction). In resonant Auger spectra obtained after excitation below both the C 1s and O 1s ionization thresholds we notice a predominance of spectator decay implying a strong mixing between empty molecular orbitals and Rydberg states.
