Allyl alcohol is widely used as a precursor to many specialized compounds such as allyl glycidyl ether, allyl diglycidyl carbonate, allyl methacrylate, flame-resistant materials, drying oils and plasticizers. It is used as a raw material for the synthesis of glycerol, glycidyl ethers, esters and amines. It is involved in the synthesis of a variety of polymerizable esters such as diallyl phthalate.
Carboxylic acids can be protected as allyl esters, by reaction of allyl alcohol with an activated carboxyl group. They are readily cleaved in the presence of Pd catalysts: J. Org. Chem., 47, 587 (1982); Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 23, 71 (1984); J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 1216 (1990).
