isomerization of olefins
« on: October 11, 2004, 10:04:40 AM »
What kind of catalyst is needed for the isomerization of alfa olefins to linear internal olefins? I heard the name iron pentacarbonyl. Can it be used for this reaction?

Lots of metals can do this.  It's certainly possible that iron could, but I'm not sure.

I think the more common ones are rhodium, ruthenium, palladium, etc.
