Hydroxylamines and Related Compounds
Rule C-842 Oximes and Their Derivatives 842.1 - Compounds RHC=N-OH or , termed generic ally "oximes", are named (a) by placing the word "oxime"
after the name of the aldehyde RCHO or the ketone , respectively, or (b), if the compound contains also a group having priority over a carbonyl group for citation as
principal group, by use of the prefix "hydroxyimino-" attached to the name of the corresponding compound RCH3 or .
842.2 - Compounds containing the group =N-OR are named (a) by a prefix of the type "alkyloxyimino-", "aryloxyimino-", etc., or (b) as oxime
O-ethers, or (c) as O-substituted oximes.
Examples to Rule C-842.1
842.3 - Compounds containing the grouping >C=N(O)R are named by adding the word "N-oxide" after the name of the alkylideneamino (etc.) compound. The class name
"nitrone" is retained (see also Rule C-843.1).
