Allylacetic acid (allyl acetate) is a derivative of acetate. It is
the acetate ester of allyl alcohol. It is useful industrial
intermediate. It is the precursor of some special polymer such as
drying oils. It can also be used as a useful allylating reagent for
catalyzing the allylation of aldehydes, and also allylation of aryl
bromides in the palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction. It has
also demonstrated that it is a potential fumigant against grain
beetle pests; study has shown that doses of 50–150 mg litre?1 with
24–120-h exposures are necessary to achieve 100% mortality of all
life stages against grain beetle pests. Study has also shown that
ally acetate is an effective oxidants during the Palladium—
