This research visualized the effect of different substituents, which could be either activators or deactivators on an aromatic ring for alcohol oxidants using Chromium(VI). The color of chromic acid changes from orange to blue gradually, providing a method to visualize the rate. Rate constants were used as a quantitative method to evaluate the rate.
