α-fluoro-β-haloacrylic acids


  1. 1.

    α-Fluoro-β-haloacrylic acids are formed when the esters ofα-fluoro-α,β-dihalopropionic acids are heated with aqueous alkali, followed by acidification.

  2. 2.

    The heat dehydrochlorination of the acid chloride ofα-fluoro-α,β-dichloropropionic acid gives the acid chloride ofα-fluoro-β-chloroacrylic acid.

  3. 3.

    Methyl (α-fluoro-β-chlorovinyl) ketone was synthesized.
