Recent results on the dynamics of ethylcyclohexane obtained using high resolution dielectric spectroscopy and mechanical spectroscopy at ultrasonic frequencies have been analyzed in comparison with experimental data on relaxations occurring in different materials having in common the presence of the cyclohexyl ring in their molecular structure. On the basis of experimental evidence concerning several cyclohexane-derived materials, some features of the secondary relaxations have been outlined that could be applicable to a wider class of materials.
