C3H5OH ALLYL ALCOHOL or CH2:CH•CH2OH, a compound which occurs in very small quantities in wood spirit. It may be prepared from allyl iodide by the action of moist silver oxide; by the reduction of acrolein; or by heating glycerin with oxalic acid and a little ammonium chloride to 26o° C. In this last reaction glycerol monoformin is produced as an intermediate product, but is decomposed as the temperature rises: CaH5(OH)3+H2C20a =C3H5(OH)2.O.CHO+CO2+H20 glycerol monoformin
