Abstract: oxo compoundsoxo compounds (general) Q 0310 -081Novel and Efficient Isomerization of Allylic Alcohols Promoted by a Tetrapropylammonium Perruthenate Catalyst.-A wide variety of allylic alcohols (I) and (IV) undergoes TPAP-catalyzed double bond isomerization in the absence of oxygen affording the corresponding saturated ketones or aldehydes in high yields. The reaction tolerates mono-, di-, as well as tri-substituted allylic alcohols and cis-as well as trans-substitution patterns. A plausible reaction mechanis…
