My textbook says an aliphatic compound is when carbon atoms are joined in chains or non aromatic rings and that an alicyclic compound has carbon atoms in a ring.
So if there was a hydrocarbon in which the carbons were joined in a non aromatic ring would it be both an aliphatic or alicyclic hydrocarbon or is there a difference between an aliphatic ring and a alicyclic ring?
Thanks
