A silver-catalyzed ring-opening chlorination of cycloalkanols enables a regioselective, efficient, and pratical approach to carbonyl-containing alkyl chlorides with good yields under mild conditions. The chlorinated products are readily transformed into other useful synthetic intermediates and drugs.
