Aliphatic compound is also known as non-aromatic compounds. It is an organic compound containing carbon and hydrogen joined together in straight chains, branched chains, or non-aromatic rings. It is one of two broad classes of hydrocarbons, the other being aromatic compounds. Aliphatic compounds can be saturated, like hexane, or unsaturated, like hexene and hexyne. Examples of aliphatic compounds are Ethylene, isooctane, acetylene, propene, propane, squalene, and polyethylene. The simplest aliphatic compound is methane, CH4.
Most aliphatic compounds are flammable, allowing the use of hydrocarbons as fuel, such as methane in Bunsen burners and as liquefied natural gas (LNG), and acetylene in welding. Aliphatic or eliphatic acids are the acids of nonaromatic hydrocarbons. Examples of aliphatic acids are butyric acid, propionic acid, and acetic acid.
