      The current status on the photochemistry of the carbon-halogen bond, incorporated in a wide variety of organic compounds, is presented. It mainly deals with the photolytic cleavage of theC-X bond in solution phase. The major development in this field has been the generation of saturated, vinyl and α-keto carbonium ions by photochemical methods. The factors that control the type of cleavage, viz, homolytic-heterolytic are discussed. The mechanistic aspects as well as the synthetic utility of the photoreactions of some organic halides are highlighted.
