The rearrangement of allylic alcohols is a simple method for the synthesis of isomeric allylic alcohols. Classically, this reaction is carried out in an acidic medium (Section, but the use of rhenium catalysis gives rearranged allylic alcohols in excellent yields and with efficient 1,3-transfer of chirality (Section
