Reaction of ɑ-halo alkanoic acids with a dialkyl phosphite in the presence of NaH, followed by treatment of the resulting phosphonoacetate salt with an aldehyde (or cycloalkanone) provides a convenient one-pot alternative to the Knoevenagel or Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reactions for the synthesis of a variety of substituted acrylic acids: J. Org. Chem., 46, 2514 (1981):
For a simplified variant of the reaction, applicable to the synthesis of ɑ-unsubstituted cinnamic acids, see Chloroacetic acid, A11482.
