  • Halogenation is a chemical reaction that introduces one or more halogen atoms into a molecule. Halogenation can be subdivided into fluorination, chlorination, bromination, and iodination depending on which type of halogen atom is introduced. The importance of halogenation cannot be overstated. Many halogen compounds have commercial uses and, it is by introduction of a halogen atom in to a molecule that a variety of other functional groups can be obtained; i.e. halogenation is an important step in many organic syntheses.
