In case of alkyl halides, the halogen atom is bonded to an alkyl group (R). They form a homologous series represented by CnH2n+1X. The alkyl halides are further classified as primary, secondary or tertiary according to the nature of carbon to which halogen is attached. The common names of alkyl halides are derived by naming the alkyl group followed by the halide. Alkyl halides are named as halo substituted hydrocarbons in the IUPAC system of nomenclature.
