What are alicyclic compounds?

How do they differ from cyclic compounds?

How to identify if a compound is aliphatic or arromatic or alicyclic?

5 years ago


Answers : (1)


Dear student,

Aliphatic cyclic compounds are called alicyclic compounds. These compounds are named as follows:

  • The number of carbon atoms in the ring determines the word root.

  • The primary suffix cyclo- is added before the word root.

  • The primary suffix is determined by the nature of the ring (saturated or unsaturated).

Sometimes the carbon atoms in an alkane will form a complete ring. Such compounds are called cyclic compounds or ring compounds. When this happens, the prefix cyclo- is added to the name.
