Is a haloalkane just another word for a halogenoalkane? Are they exactly the same thing?

I'm pretty sure they are but just thought I would check!

Yes they are the completely the same thing. Its just that in the new spec they have a new word to use but it is ok if you use haloalkane. You wont lose any marks

Are you OCR A?

They used to call it halogenoalkane and have now swapped to the more traditional haloalkane.

After seven years of teaching the spec, the term halogenoalkane is ingrained and difficult to swap to haloalkane, especially for the first year, when Y13 kids are expecting you to say halogenoalkane and the next lesson you've got a Y12 and you've got to say haloalkane.

Oh the life of teacher. It is soooo tough.
