Au/NiO catalyzed the isomerization of allylic alcohols to afford saturated aldehydes. LaNi mixed oxide could stabilize Au(III) and afford gold clusters smaller than 1 nm by H2reduction. The resulting Au clusters on La-Ni-O exhibited superior catalytic performance to Au/NiO for the isomerization of internal allylic alcohol, 2-octen-1-ol to octanal.
