Give one example each of pseudo halide and pseudohalogen.


Pseudohalides are false halides, and their composition resembles true halides. These are generally weak bases of Lewis which carry a formal negative 1 charge.

Examples: CN, N3

The pseudohalogens are polyatomic halogens, whose chemistry resembles that of the true halogens.
