JONES REAGENT OXIDATION REACTION

* The Jones reagent is a mixture of chromic anhydride and dilute sulfuric acid (CrO3 + H2SO4 + H2O) in acetone. It is used in the oxidation of secondary alcohols, that do not contain acid sensitive groups, to corresponding ketones.

* The primary alcohols are initially oxidized to aldehydes, which are finally oxidized to carboxylic acids.

* A mixture of sodium dichromate or potassium dichromate in dilute sulfuric acid and acetone can also be used as Jones reagent.
