Allyl Alcohol


an elementary unsaturated alcohol; CH2=CH−CH2OH. It is a colorless liquid with a sharp odor It boils at 96.9°C, and its density is 852 kg/m3; it mixes in any proportion with water, alcohol, or ether. Allyl alcohol is obtained by the hydrolysis of allyl chloride:


Allyl alcohol is an intermediate product in the production of glycerine, synthetic resins, and plastic materials.

It could be seen that the byproducts of the whole reaction process included the unreacted raw materials such as dimethylamine ([(C[H.sub.3]).sub.2]NH) and allyl chloride (C[H.sub.2] = CHC[H.sub.2]Cl), the intermediate products such as dimethylamine hydrochloride ([(C[H.sub.3]).sub.2][N.sup.+][H.sub.2]Cl), allyldimethylamine (C[H.sub.2] = CHC[H.sub.2]N[(C[H.sub.3]).sub.2]) and its hydrochloride salt (C[H.sub.2] = CHC[H.sub.2][N.sup.+]H[(C[H.sub.3]).sub.2][Cl.sup.-]), and the other byproducts such as allyl alcohol (C[H.sub.2] = CHC[H.sub.2]OH) from the hydrolyzation of allyl chloride in alkaline medium and allyl aldehyde (C[H.sub.2] = CHCHO) from oxidation of allyl alcohol.
