haro no sakusan

the above romaji could be put into
Japanese with "haro" in katakana, "no"
in hiragana and "sakusan" (acetic acid)
in kanji. The explanation of the word
"haloactetic acids) is as follows "Acetic acid derivatives such as monochloroacetic acid, trichloroaciteic acid, trifluoroacetic acid and so on are usually called haloacetic acid(s) or ナuノnノ酲m黥饑ナvin Japanese. The compounds that hydrogen atom(s) of acetic acid replace by halogen atom(s) such as chlorine or fluorine are named as haloacetic acid(s) or alpha haloacid(s). In addition, the haloacetic acids are not permitted for the use of sterilization of drinking water in Japan as far as what I know."

harogen zoku sakusan

A replacement of a molecule of hydrogen of acetic acid (sakusan) into a halogenic molecules gives you the haloacetic acid.
'harogen' is in katakana, zoku (means family) and sakusan (literaturly, vinegar acid) are in kanji.
