    • acyclic In botany, not cyclic; not arranged in whorls. Applied by Braun to flowers that have a spiral arrangement of parts, when the spiral turns made by each class of organs are not all complete, iu distinction from hemicyclic, where all are complete.

    • acyclic Irregular in course; not occurring with normal periodicity.
    • acyclic In chem., containing no cycle or ring: said of organic compounds which contain no ring of atoms.
