Identify allylic alcohols in the above examples.
Allylic alcohol is an organic compound which has the structural formula CH2 = CHCH2OH. In other words, in these alcohols, the the-OH group is attached to sp2 hybridized carbon next to the carbon-carbon double bond, that is to an allylic carbon. Therefore, in the above examples, the following are the allylic alcohols.
