Question and answer
what is the difference between aliphatic and aromatic compounds??
Aliphatic compounds can be cyclic, like cyclohexane, or acyclic, like hexane. [ They also can be saturated, like hexane, or unsaturated, like hexene. In aliphatic compounds, carbon atoms can be joined together in straight chains, branched chains, or non-aromatic rings (in which case they are called alicyclic). They can be joined by single bonds (alkanes), double bonds (alkenes), or triple bonds
(alkynes). Besides hydrogen, other elements can be bound to the carbon chain, the most common being oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, and chlorine. The simplest aliphatic compound is methane (CH4). Aliphatics include alkanes (e.g. paraffin hydrocarbons), alkenes (e.g. ethylene) and alkynes (e.g. acetylene). Fatty acids consist of an unbranched aliphatic tail attached to a carboxyl group. Most aliphatic compounds are flammable, allowing the use of hydrocarbons as fuel, such as methane in Bunsen burners and as Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), and acetylene in welding.=========aromatic compound or aromaticity structures of some rings of atoms are unexpectedly stable. Aromaticity is a chemical property in which a conjugated ring of unsaturated bonds, lone pairs, or empty orbitals exhibit a stabilization stronger than would be expected by the stabilization of conjugation alone. It can also be considered a manifestation of cyclic delocalization and of resonance ]

Weegy: Why did not you satisy about this answer. It is a complete knowledge User: give 8 differences between aliphatic and aromatic compounds Weegy: Aliphatic compounds could be straight chain structures [Acyclic] like alkanes or cyclic structures, [ like cycloalkanes. Aliphatic compounds are hydrocarbon chains - strings of carbon atoms connected to each other with hydrogen atoms hanging off the sides of the chain. one exception for the definition of aliphatic side chain is Proline which also has aliphatic side chain but the its side chain is bonded to both carbon and nitrogen. Aromatic compounds have benzene ring (older notion). Aromatic compounds are those which follow Huckel's rule. (4n + 2pi) rule. They have the general formula: CnH2n-6 [where n is equal to or greater than 6] Aromatic compounds are rings - so take the chain and connect the two ends together to form a continuous loop. ] (More)
