Placement of halide substituent in IUPAC name

Postby Nhat Anh Cao 1C » Mon Feb 29, 2016 11:03 pm

Do halides always come first in the name or does it go alphabetically? (I.e. If there was an ethyl and a fluorine anion attached to the same carbon, which would be listed first?)

Because halides are substituents, ethyl comes before fluoro.
