Malonic ester syntheses

Which is malonic ester syntheses?

The Malonic ester synthesis is a chemical method that exploits the strongly activated methylene group of malonic esters. When reacted with sodium ethoxide, malonic esters form a resonance-stabilized ion that can be alkylated or acylated. Upon hydrolysis, the resulting alkylmalonic acids can be readily decarboxylated to yield mono- or disubstituted monocarboxylic acids.
