ACD/Name
Related groups include acyl substituent groups, acid halides, anhydrides, hydrazides, amides, imides, nitriles, and aldehydes whose names are formed from the appropriate name stem as follows:

(1) acyl groups by changing the "-ic acid" or "-oic acid" ending to "-oyl" (except for those names in the table marked with a dagger (†), for which the "-ic acid" ending is changed to "-yl") (see also R-5.7.1).

(2) acid halides by adding the appropriate class name to the name of the acyl group (see also R-5.7.6).

(3) aldehydes and amides by replacing the "-ic acid" or "-oic acid" ending by "-aldehyde" or "amide", respectively (see also R-5.6.1 or R-5.7.8.1, respectively).

(4) nitriles and hydrazides by replacing the "-ic acid" or "-oic acid" ending by "-onitrile" or "-ohydrazide", respectively (see also R-5.7.9 or R-5.7.8.4, respectively).

(5) imides by replacing the "-ic acid" ending of a dicarboxylic acid by "-imide" (see also R-5.7.8.3).
