In this paper we present a study of the isomerization of some allylbenzenes such as allylbenzene, eugenol, methylchavicol, and safrole.  It is the first time this reaction take place in a microwave batch reactor in aq. acid(sulfuric).  High yields of 1-propenylbenzene were obtained from allylbenzene after short reaction times.
