hal·ide

(hăl′īd′, hā′līd′)
A chemical compound consisting of a halogen and another element, especially one such as sodium or potassium that readily shares electrons. Salt is a halide.

halide

A compound which a halogen makes with another element. Metal halides are ionic; nonmetal halides are formed by covalent bonding.

Csp2-Csp2 cross-coupling reactions between arylboronic acid and aryl halides are widely used in both academia and industry and are strategically important in the development of new agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Mostly French chemists focus mainly on the cross-coupling reactions between organo halides as well as pseudo-halides and Grignard reagents to form carbon-carbon bonds using in turn palladium, nickel, iron, cobalt, manganese, copper, and silver.
Don't dismiss L1 fluxes just because they have some halides. Considering Revision B's closure of the spot test loophole, the old LO flux could contain more halides than the new LI flux.
How in the world does a 200-W CFL outperform a 1,000-W metal halide? Even if the metal halides were severely degraded, let's say 50 percent, the CFL's scotopic lumens would only be half that.
Postlethwaite and Freese [12] studied the effect of halide ions on the anodic behaviour of pure nickel in [H.sub.2]S[O.sub.4] solutions and observed that all the halides accelerate the dissolution in active state and can break down the passive oxide layer so that the metal becomes severely pitted.
The bioprocess involves a first-of-its-kind approach to craft genetically engineered microbes with the much-sought ability to transform switchgrass, corn cobs, and other organic materials into methyl halides - the raw material for making gasoline and a host of other commercially important products.

What exactly are halogens and halides? Why do we want to get rid of them?
Group VII B of the periodic table contains five elements which are called halides in the reduced state and halogens in the oxidized state: fluorine (MW=19); chlorine (MW=36); bromine (MW=80); iodine (MW=127); and astatine (MW=210).
