Thermo Scientific halogen-containing compounds

Organo halides (also known as halocarbons) are organic compounds containing halogens such as fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and iodine. Depending on the type of halogen atom, these are referred to as organofluourine compounds, organochlorine compounds, organobromine compounds, and organoiodine compounds, of which organic chlorides are the most common. In general, organo halides are produced by synthetic routes rather than a biological route. Numerous chemical reactions involve the use of organic halides, including the Grignard and Reformatsky reactions.

Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a broad portfolio of organohalogens suitable for a range of laboratory applications.

Alkyl halides are organic compounds in which one or more hydrogen atoms have been replaced by a halogen atom in an alkane molecule (saturated hydrocarbon chain). Compounds may be in closed ring configurations.

Aryl halides, also known as haloarenes or halogenoarenes, are organic compounds that contain an aromatic ring with one or more hydrogen atoms replaced by a halogen atom.

Acyl halides are carboxylic acid derivatives in which the hydroxyl group has been replaced by a halogen.

In addition to our catalog range shown above, we can deliver bulk quantities to suit your custom or bulk requirements.
