A variety of substituted aromatic aldehydes were smoothly converted to the corresponding acryclic acid ethyl ester with the reaction of ethyldiazoacetate using Cu(II) triflate as catalyst in the presence of triphenylphosphine as reducing agent. Yields of the products obtained were found to be good to excellent.
