Upon is a preposition, generally used in formal situations and can be used to replace the word ‘on’ in certain situations.
Here are some examples:
I will deal with her upon my return
He carefully placed the vase upon the table.
She insisted upon seeing you even though I told her you were very busy today!
My whole career depended upon the decisions made this week.
That kind of behaviour is frowned upon.
