Halogen Derivatives

Rule C-101

101.1 - Halogen derivatives may be named according to three basic systems, namely, by substitutive nomenclature, by radicofunctional nomenclature, or by additive nomenclature. The substitutive names are recommended for general use as the other two types of nomenclature, particularly additive nomenclature, are limited in their application.
