Industrial uses for Jones Oxidation?

  1. Mar 25, 2008 #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.
