An efficient, catalytic Hunsdiecker reaction of aliphatic carboxylic acids affords the corresponding chlorodecarboxylation products in high yields under mild conditions in the presence of t-butyl hypochlorite and Ag(Phen)2OTf as catalyst. The reaction exhibits remarkable functional group compatibility.
