A quantum chemical investigation of the stability of compounds with identical formulas was carried out on 23 classes of halogenated compounds made of H, F, Cl, Br, I, C, N, P, O and S atoms. All possible structures were generated by combinatorial approach and studied by statistical methods. The prevalence of formula in which its Z configuration, gauche conformation and meta isomer are the most stable forms is calculated and discussed. Quantitative and qualitative models to explain the stability of the 23 classes of halogenated compounds were also proposed.
