Industrial uses for Jones Oxidation?

  • #1
I'm currently writing an organic chemistry lab report, and for each experiment that we do when we write the lab report we must provide a real-world industrial use the procedure could give rise to. So anyone know any real world applications of the Jones Oxidation reaction?

I think the Breathalyzer is a Jones oxidation using potassium dichromate and sulfuric acid.
