Of, pertaining to, or derived from, fat; fatty; -- applied to compounds having an open-chain structure. The aliphatic compounds thus include not only the fatty acids and other derivatives of the paraffin hydrocarbons, but also unsaturated compounds, as the ethylene and acetylene series. Compare alicyclic and aromatic.
As opposed to aromatic, applies to carbon chains.
Any organic compound in which the main structure is a chain of carbon atoms joined to each other.
Hydrocarbon that does not contain an aromatic ring structure. See AROMATIC.
Hydrocarbons that are not aromatic.
A class of saturated or unsaturated carbon compounds, in which the carbon atoms are joined in open chains.
Alifaattinen Alifatisk An organic compound which doesn't contain a benzene ring
One of the main groups of hydrocarbons characterised by the straight or branched chain arrangement of constituent atoms. Aliphatic hydrocarbons belong to three subgroups: alkanes or paraffins, all of which are saturated and comparatively unreactive, the alkenes or alkadienes which are unsaturated (containing double [C=C] bonds) and more reactive, and alkynes, such as acetylene (which contain a triple [C=C] bond).
having carbon atoms linked in open chains
Of, relating to, or designating a group of organic chemical compounds in which the carbon atoms are linked in open chains.
The name usually applied to petroleum products derived from a paraffin base crude oil, and sometimes called “straight chain hydrocarbons.” Among the typical aliphatic hydrocarbons are gasoline, mineral spirits, naphtha, and kerosene.
any non- aromatic organic compound having an open chain structure.
Describes a group of organic compounds, including paraffins, olefins, and acetylenes
Refers to a major series of organic compounds whose carbon atoms are arranged in straight or branched chains.
An organic substance containing straight or branched chain arrangements of carbon atoms.
A class of organic solvents which are composed of open chains of carbon atoms, derived from paraffin base crude oil. Aliphatics are relatively weak solvents. Among the typical aliphatic hydrocarbons are gasoline, mineral spirits, naphtha and kerosene.
Compare with aromatic. An organic compound that does not contain ring structures.
Class of organic chemical compounds containing carbon, having an open chain molecular structure.
One of the major groups of organic compounds characterized by straight-chain arrangement of the constituent carbon atoms.
A major group of organic compounds characterized by the presence of straight chain arrangements of carbon atoms. The three subgroups that comprise aliphatic hydrocarbons are paraffins (alkanes), olefins (alkenes), and acetylenes (alkynes).
derived from or related to fats and other derivatives of the paraffin hydrocarbons, including unsaturated compounds of the ethylene and acetylene series.
Belonging to a class of "fatty" open-chained carbon compounds which do not contain aromatic rings.
Three subgroups of hydrocarbons, parafins (alkanes), olefins (alkenes), and acetylenes (alkynes) characterized by their straight chains of carbon atoms.
