Interaction of allyl alcohol, acrolein and allene with zeolite HZSM-5 results in the formation of alkenyl carbenium ion oligomers as intermediates. According to the molecular electrostatic potential map and to the partial atomic charges from MNDO calculations as the preliminary step, the oxygen atom of allyl alcohol is attacked by the proton, followed by dehydration to allene, undergoing further transformation.
