R-5.5.5 Hydroperoxides and peroxides

Compounds with the general structure are called generically "hydroperoxides" and are named substitutively by citing the prefix "hydroperoxy-" before the name of the parent hydride corresponding to R, and by functional class nomenclature by citing the prefix name of the group R followed by the class name "hydroperoxide" as a separate word .
