The aliphatic page states that cyclic compounds and alicyclic compounds are not aliphatic, contradictory with this page.

There is great confusion here, yes. The above is wrong. This page says "Alicyclic compounds may or may not have aliphatic side chains attached" - if they don't, they are not alicyclic but cyclic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:05, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
