Graphical Abstract:


Allylation reaction has been considered to be the most intriguing means for building collections of functionalized allylic compounds. The application of allylic alcohols for coupling reaction is complicated and typically summarized as four types such as they act as: allylation reagents, aldehyde/ ketone sources, allylic ether reagents, and as allylic alcohol sources. The molecular insights enunciated herein allude to abundant opportunities for acting as allylation reagents as well as serving as aldehyde/ ketone sources. It is our intent to propose that the domain of allylation reaction and the formation of aldehydes and ketones could enjoy additional benefits by having knowledge of the application of allylic alcohols in the organic synthesis.

Keywords: Allylic alcohol, allylation, transition-metal catalyzed, activation, regio-/stereo-selective, aldehydes, ketones.
