Halogen derivatives of aliphatic or aromatic hydrocarbons are theoretically obtained when one or more hydrogen atoms of an alkane or arene is/are replaced by (one or more) halogen atom(s). They are important synthetic intermediates from which many other organic compounds can be derived. This is because the halogen atoms is easily replaced by atoms or group of atoms leading to new compounds.
Aliphatic or aromatic halogen compounds are usually named as derivatives of the parent hydrocarbons: CH3CL – chloromethane or methylchloride.
Preparation: Halogenalkanes and halogenoarenes can be obtained starting from appropriate starting materials as follows:
2. Alkenes or alkynes
4. Other halogens
5. Aromatic hydrocarbons and
6. Diazonium salts
