I am currently making images of the chemical reactions mentioned in the "Chemical Reactions" section, and I plan to upload them when I'm done. Also I plan to investigate the reactions of acyl halides with Gilman and Grignard reagents for possible inclusion in the "Chemical Reactions" section.
I"m also planning to write a short new section at the end called "Synthesis", where I will discuss the synthesis of acyl halides (or at least chlorides). H Padleckas 22:38, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)
The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was to not merge. Plasmic Physics (talk) 11:01, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
If you already have a page that covers all acyl halides, why create a separate page for acyl fluoride, chloride, etc? Cre81ve master (talk) 03:30, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
I know, right? The article claims this specific class of compound to be more important than any other, then doesn't bother to explain why. I think the distinction is silly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:58, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
Oppose - Acyl halides undergo different reactions strongly depending on the halide, and acyl chloride is the most commonly encountered acyl halide. Plasmic Physics (talk) 11:52, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
