    Hello,

    I came across the term "controlled oxidation" and can't find any explanation anywhere about it. Can somebody please explain what this means and where it occurs in ideal situations? And what is "uncontrolled oxidation" and where would it occur then?

    Thank you so much!

    Thank you! I have a project just on "controlled oxidation" but my textbook refers to the controlled oxidation of alcohols like you stated above. But, I just wanted to know if this was the only place we would see the controlled oxidation. And where then would "uncontrolled" oxidation take place. And what would be some examples of controlled oxidation reactions in everyday life?

    I have two more questions: what jobs/careers would be associated with the application of controlled oxidation? And what are some scientific accomplishments made on this subject matter?
