The IUPAC Nomenclature for Transformations is a methodology for naming a chemical reaction.
A chemical reaction is a process that leads to the chemical transformation of one set of chemical substances to another.

Name reaction

named reactionname reactionsnamed reactions
Traditionally a chemical reaction especially in organic chemistry is named after its inventor, the so-called named reaction, to name just a few: Knoevenagel condensation, Wittig reaction or Diels-Alder reaction.
Although systematic approaches for naming reactions based on the reaction mechanism or the overall transformation exist (such as the IUPAC Nomenclature for Transformations), the more descriptive names are often unwieldy or not specific enough, so people names are often more practical for efficient communication.

Halogenation

chlorinationbrominationhalogenated
A lot of reactions derive their name from the reagent involved like bromination or acylation.

Acylation

A lot of reactions derive their name from the reagent involved like bromination or acylation.

Wacker process

WackerWacker plant
On rare occasions the reaction is named after the company responsible like in the Wacker process or the name only hints to the process involved like in the halogen dance rearrangement.

Halogen dance rearrangement

On rare occasions the reaction is named after the company responsible like in the Wacker process or the name only hints to the process involved like in the halogen dance rearrangement.

Substitution reaction

substitutionsubstitutedsubstituting
substitutions have the infix -de- example: methoxy-de-bromination for the chemical reaction of a bromo-alkane to an alkoxy-alkane

Addition reaction

addition1,2-additionaddition reactions
additions end with -addition example: hydro-bromo-addition for the hydrobromination of an alkene

Elimination reaction
