Description

 

Allyl alcohol is an organic compound. Allyl alcohol is used as a raw material for the production of glycerol, but is used as a precursor to many specialized compounds. Allyl alcohol is the smallest representative of the allylic alcohols.Allyl alcohol is mainly converted to glycerol, a reaction that proceeds via the intermediacy of glycidol. Otherwise a variety of polymerizable esters are prepared from allyl alcohol.
