Abstract

A mechanism for the isomerization of allylic alcohols by CH 3ReO 3 has been constructed on the basis of 18O isotopic studies and involves exchange between the alcohol and metal-bonded O atoms, in contrast to a previously published mechanism, which involved the 1,3-transposition of the O atom on the alcohol. Our method of analysis does not directly rule out this latter mechanism.
