Acrolein

CAS No.

 107-02-8

Acrolein is prepared industrially by oxidation of propene. 

 

The process uses air as the source of oxygen and requires metal oxides as heterogeneous catalysts.

 

Acrolein is a relatively electrophilic compound and a reactive one, hence its high toxicity. It is a good Michael acceptor, hence its useful reaction with thiols.
