On this page we will discuss the nomenclature of halogen derivative compounds. We are assuming you have read our previous tutorials or you know the basic rules of nomenclature.
Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, Iodines are the members of halogen family.
Halo groups are always treated as substituents. Halo (fluoro, chloro, bromo, iodo) is prefixed to word root to indicate the presence of a halogen.
If two different halo groups are present, they are named alphabetically.
Multiple bond is preferred while numbering a haloalkane.
