    Supporting Information ]

The isomerization of primary allylic alcohols into the corresponding aldehydes has been accomplished using an analogue of Crabtree’s iridium hydrogenation catalyst and by adequately tuning the experimental conditions. A wide range of substrates is converted quantitatively into the desired aldehyde at room temperature in expedient reaction times by using catalyst loading as low as 0.25 mol %.
