In a catalytic system for the chlorination of alcohols under Appel conditions, benzotrichloride is used as a cheap and readily available chlorinating agent in combination with trioctylphosphane as the catalyst and phenylsilane as the terminal reductant under solvent-free conditions. In total, 27 different primary, secondary, and tertiary alkyl chlorides were synthesized in good yields.
