Specific Classes of Compounds
R-5.7.2 Chalcogen acids containing chalcogen atoms directly linked to an organic group R-18.104.22.168 Sulfur acids containing sulfur atoms directly linked to an organic group are named substitutively on the basis of a
parent hydride name by adding an appropriate suffix as illustrated in Table 14. The prefixes "sulfo-" and "sulfino-" are used to express sulfonic and sulfinic acid groups as substituents,
Some trivial names are allowed (see R-9.1, Table 30)
Examples to R-22.214.171.124
(not Toluene-2,4-disulfonic acid,
see R-9.1 Table 19(a)
R-126.96.36.199 Selenium acids containing selenium directly linked to an organic group are named in the same way as the corresponding sulfur acids (see R-188.8.131.52) by
replacing the stem "sulf-" with "selen-" in the name.
Example to R-184.108.40.206
R-5.7.3 Phosphorus and arsenic acids containing phosphorus or arsenic atoms derictly linked to an organic group
R-5.7.4 Salts and esters
R-5.7.5 Lactones, lactams, lactims, and analogues
R-5.7.6 Acid halides
R-5.7.7 Anhydrides and their analogues
R-5.7.8 Amides, imides, and hydrazides
R-5.7.9 Nitriles, isocyanides and related compounds
