In the condensed structural formula, each carbon atom is written separately and following each carbon atom are listed the other atoms that are bonded to that carbon atom. In this case the first carbon atom has three hydrogen atoms bonded to it, the second carbon atom has two hydrogen atoms bonded to it, the third carbon atom has two hydrogen atoms, and the fourth carbon atom has three hydrogen atoms. Another even more condensed way of writing a condensed structural formula is this. It points out that there are two CH2 groups in the middle of the molecule by having (CH2)2 in the middle of the formula.Condensed Structure journals embrace the fields of Chemical Physics and Applied Physics.
