  Acyl halide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In chemistry, the term acyl halide (also known as acid halide) refers to a compound derived from an acid by replacing a hydroxyl group with a halide group.
A common method for the synthesis of acyl halides in the laboratory is by reaction of carboxylic acids with reagents such as thionyl chloride and phosphorus pentachloride for acyl halides, phosphorus tribromide for acyl bromides and cyanuric fluoride for acyl fluorides
Acyl halides are artificial (meaning not found in nature), rather reactive compounds often synthesized to be used as intermediates in the synthesis of other organic compounds.

 Acyl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In chemistry, the term acyl or acyl group refers to a functional group obtained from an acid by removal of a hydroxyl group.
It therefore has the formula RC(=O)-, with a double bond between the carbon and oxygen atoms (thus forming a carbonyl group), and a single bond between R and the carbon; R denotes the group that occurs in the original carboxylic acid RCOOH.
Acyl groups can also be derived from other types of acids such as sulfonic acids, phosphonic acids, and some others.

The acyl radicals of an aliphatic carboxylic acid are in particular acyl radicals of alkanecarboxylic acids, especially lower-alkanecarboxylic acids of lower-alkanedicarboxylic-acids, but also of alkenecarboxylic acids, particularly of lower-alkenecarboxylic acids or lower-alkenedicarboxylic acids, and also of substituted lower-alkanecarboxylic acids, such as trifluoroacetic acid.
A reactive esterified hydroxyl group X is preferably a hydroxyl group esterified by a strong mineral or sulfonic acid, such as a hydrohalic acid, sulfuric acid, lower-alkanesulfonic acid or benzene-sulfonic acid, for example hydrochloric, hydrobromic, methanesulfonic, trifluoromethanesulfonic, benzenesulfonic or p-toluenesulfonic acid.

 Process for preparing 1.alpha.-hydroxylated compounds - Patent 4260549
It is evident that Paaren et al protected the 1.alpha.-hydroxy function group by conversion to a 1.alpha.-O-acyl group, because of the reasonable expectation that the sensitive allylic 1.alpha.-hydroxy function would be subject to degradative reaction during solvolysis using a fairly strong acid such as p-toluene sulfonic acid.
To overcome this separation problem, Paaren et al suggested a scheme in which a 1.alpha.-O-acyl cyclovitamin D compound (where acyl may represent any acyl group but not formyl) is solvolyzed in formic acid to produce the 5,6-cis and 5,6-trans mixture of the 1.alpha.-O-acyl-3.beta.-O-formyl-vitamin D compounds.
Reductive or hydrolytic methods for acyl removal are equally convenient and a choice between them would depend on the nature of other functionalities that may be present in the molecule.
