The structure of 2-chloro-1-(3-hy­droxy­phen­yl)ethanone, C8H7ClO2, an α-halo­ketone is described. The mol­ecule is planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0164 Å) and in the crystal, inversion-symmetric dimers are formed as a result of pairs of strong O—H⋯O and weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. A brief comparison is made with structurally related compounds deposited in the CSD. In addition, the synthesis and some spectroscopic details are presented.
