ClCF3 alkyl halide naming?


Expert Answer

1 Rating
Step 1

Alkyl halides have also been called as haloalkanes. In these compounds, the hydrogen group which is attached to the carbon is replaced by the halogens such as chlorine, bromine, fluorine etc.

Step 2

In the IUPAC nomenclature of the alkyl halides, the halogens are treated in the same way as the alkyl groups are treated. The name of the alkane follows the name of the halogen or is written after the name of the halogen. If a given alkyl halide contains more than one halogen, then the naming is done in an alphabetical order.

Step 3

The alkyl halide which is given in the problem is ClCF3.

From the chemical formula, it is clear ...
