General description

Allyl alcohol is an industrially important olefinic alcohol. It is the raw material for the synthesis of a wide range of allylic derivatives such as allyl diglycol carbonate, allyl glycidyl ether, 1,4-butanediol, poly(styrene-allyl alcohol), etc. These derivatives find application as lens, coupling agents, plasticizers, crosslinking agents and coating additives. Allyl alcohol can be prepared by the rhenium catalyzed-deoxydehydration of glycerol.
The partial oxidation of allyl alcohol over oxygen-precovered gold surface was studied.

Application

Used to induce a mouse model of liver damage that has been used to study the mechanisms of hepatotoxicity and hepatic stem cell-mediated repair.
Allyl alcohol may be used in the preparation of propylene via photocatalytic transfer hydrogenolysis in the presence of Pd/TiO2 catalysts.
Allyl alcohol was used to grow fitter yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).

We report a particle size dependence for the rate of hydrogenation of allyl alcohol using 1.3-1.9 nm Pd dendrimer-encapsulated nanoparticle (DEN) catalysts. For particles with diameters of <1.5 nm and containing <147 Pd atoms, the modulation in catalytic activity is...
