  1. 1.

    The transesterification of the diethyl esters of the mono- and disubstituted malonic acids with n-butyl alcohol in the presence of sodium butylate gave the di-n-butyl ester of cyclohexylmalonic acid, the di-n-butyl ester of geranylmalonic acid, and the di-n-butyl ester of cyclohexylgeranylmalonic acid. All of the compounds are new.

  2. 2.

    The number and complexity of the structure of the substituents in the acid portion of the malonic esters have little effect on the yield of the transesterification product.
