Transition metal-catalyzed allyllic alcohol selective dehydrogenation to generate the corresponding α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compound has attached great attention. However, most of these methods require stoichiometric quantities of oxidants, which will bring a lot of by-products and lack of atomic economy. Herein, a simple [RuCl2(p-cymene)]2 catalyzed system to efficiently catalyze the selective dehydrogenation of allyl alcohol to form α,β-unsaturated carbonyls without the use of additional oxidants or H2 acceptors has been developed.

Key words: ruthenium, acceptorless dehydrogenation, allylic alcohols, α,β-unsaturated carbonyls
