Ch # 10 Alkyl Halides Short Question


Halogen derivatives of alkanes are called haloalkanes. They may be mono, di, tri or poly haloalkanes depending upon the number of halogen atoms present in the molecule. Among these, monohaloalkanes are also called Alkyl Halides. Their general formula R-X where R may be methyl, ethyl, propyl, etc. and X represents halogen atoms (F, Cl, Br, I)……………
